1LibyaLYCommercial Registration NumberCRN

Prior to 2013, the CR number consisted of a prefix followed by a sequence of digits. The prefix represented the city or region where the company was registered, and the digits indicated the unique identification number assigned to the company. For example, a CR number for a company registered in Tripoli could be "TL12345".

Since 2013: the new format consists of a combination of letters and digits. The format is as follows:

  • The first letter represents the city or region of registration. For example, "T" for Tripoli, "B" for Benghazi, "M" for Misrata, and so on.
  • The following two digits represent the year of registration.
  • The next four digits represent the unique identification number assigned to the company.

"TL12345" or
