This page explains how to search for organisations in the Organisation Registration system via the Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps platform.
The search functionality is particularly useful if you wish to register an organisation and you are unsure whether it has already been registered.
It also enables you to find general information about an organisation registered in the Organisation Registration system.
If you plan to register an organisation, it is highly recommended that you search for organisations with the wanted or similar name, location or description before starting the registration process, in order to avoid multiple registrations of an organisation.
As a result you will be able to decide whether you may be able to use an already existing Organisation ID in your application forms or whether you should make a new registration.
In addition, the status of an existing organisation is also indicated in the search results (registered, NA certified or invalidated).
For details on registering an organisation please see the page OID How to register an organisation.
To access the search functionality:
The simple search option is always displayed by default.
In the search bar type the complete or partial legal name, business name, website of the organisation, Organisation ID or PIC, and click Search to display the matching results.
Partial search is performed on a minimum of 3 characters on any of the search criteria. All the organisations containing similar values to the ones you have entered will be listed. Please see the Search results section below for details on how to work with the results list.
The terms you type in the search bar make up your Active filter.
The Advanced search filters are available under the simple search box and to the left of the Search results.
The panel is collapsed by default. Use the dedicated arrow to expand it (>) and collapse it again (<), respectively.
Type or select the desired criteria and click on the Search button at the bottom to display the matching results. Please see the Search results section below for details on how to work with the results list.
If you already know the PIC or the Organisation ID of your organisation, it is preferable to search using this number, as it is unique to each organisation. If you do not have the PIC or Organisation ID at hand, try using one of the other search criteria.
The results are retrieved according to the criteria you use:
In this example we are searching using part of the organisation Legal Name and the Country as criteria.
The terms you type in the search bar make up your Active filters and they are displayed over the search results.
The organisations matching your search criteria are shown as cards in the Search results panel.
A result search box is available at the top of the results list where you can further focus on specific organisations. As you type, the list will be narrowed down to only show organisations containing the provided text in any of the fields.
A card is displayed for each institution meeting the entered search / filter / sort criteria.
