Database Subscriptions

CRiS – the largest MENA Database of Companies and Individuals in English and Arabic

CRiS MENA Database Subscriptions are the essential tool for any company with exposure to the MENA region – whether that is through credit lines, financial or reputational risk.

Access to CRiS at the Directorship & Shareholding level enables users to view over 12 million records on companies in the MENA region and instantly identify the associated people – such as shareholders, directors and managers and the links between them.


The information we hold on individuals - which is sourced from public records such as voter’s lists, gazette announcements and other similar official government notices - is linked to the company data, so that searches can be conducted to see whether a person holds/held shares in companies, or has/had management positions. As there are normally unique identifiers, this data can be used to verify the identity of MENA nationals too (see EID&V Services).

Data held on companies varies from full Due Diligence reports and Credit Reports to simple contact data; and all the registration information comes from official sources so it is as correct and as reliable as the commercial registers themselves. Whilst many of the commercial registers in MENA only hold this information in Arabic, Cedar Rose have translated and transliterated every company name into Latin/Roman characters – so companies can be found by searching in Arabic or English text. Companies who have common directors/shareholders/address/contact details or are members of the same group of companies are linked to each other so that affiliations can easily be identified and Ultimate Beneficiary Owners (UBO) can be traced.
