An API for accessing a Polish REGON database

Project Description

litex.regon - a frontend for Polish REGON database

Simple, pythonic wrapper for REGON database (web frontend is reachable at To access its SOAP API, one needs an USER_KEY issued by REGON administrators available at

Usage example below:

>>> from litex.regon import REGONAPI

REGONAPI accepts one argument: service URL (provided by REGON Administrators).


First, one needs to log in (using provided user key)

>>> api.login(USER_KEY)

After login, one can start querying the database. The search method accepts the following parameters:

  • regon - single REGON number (either 9 or 14 digits long)
  • krs - single 10 digit KRS number
  • nip - single NIP (10 digits string)
  • regons - a collection of REGONs (all of them have to be either 14 or 9 digits long)
  • krss - a collection of KRSs
  • nips - a collection of NIPs

Only one parameter is used in the query. If multiple ones are passed, first from the above list is taken into account.

Additionaly, a ‘detailed’ parameter can be passed: detailed=True causes search method to fetch default detailed report.

>>> entities ='9999999999')

entities is a list of LXML objectify objects wrapping the search results (up to 100). If search was called with detailed=True, the full report is available as the ‘detailed’ attribute.

If one knows the REGON of a business entity and an detailed report name, a full report can be fetched directly:

>>> detailed_report = api.full_report('99999999', 'PublDaneRaportFizycznaOsoba')

Report names can be found in the documentation provided by REGON admins.



  • Python 3.6 compatibility (thanks to Mariusz Witek)


  • CAPTCHA removal – no longer needed in current API


  • detailed report fetching logic reworked


  • initial release
