The organisation mentioned above is registered with the administration of Puntland only. I have looked for some kind of viable registration agency or list, and have not been able to locate one.

Research undertaken so far:

  1. Googling various combinations of "puntland somalia registration company agency list: no official links, most useful link was Wikipedia
  2. Reading the Wikipedia page, there is no relevant mention of "company", "list", "register", or "registration"
  3. Navigating from the Wikipedia page to official looking sources:
    • Archived link for official Puntland government website - no findable mention of a registration agency function.
    • Current link for official Puntland government website: judging by the description text in the <head> element of the HTML, this url appears to have been taken over by an educational blog aimed at Australian students:

      Most of the students studying in Australia may have to face a number of things related to their career and education as they proceed with their degree programs. There are many educational and skill based courses included in the traditional degree programs

    • Also looked at wiki pages for Puntland's Agency for Social Welfare and Intelligence Agency to see if there are any official links to follow - no joy, just more wiki pages.

I've concluded from this research that further research will not lead to the discovery of a viable new list for, and so have directed this organisation to the IATI Technical Team for the establishment of an XI-IATI code.
