Ask a question:
What Sirene data files are available?
Two types of products are offered free of charge as part of the universal data offer on Sirene.fr:
1 - Pre-compiled files: these files are accessible and freely downloadable on the Public Data Service (data.gouv.fr). You can retrieve the files yourself from this site. The files available for download are the following:
- the all-France stock file "Sirene dissemination";
- the monthly updates file;
- the daily updates file.
The stock file and the monthly updates file are deposited on the first day of each month with the data for the previous month (file design L2).
As the monthly updates file is the same design as the stock file, you can choose each month whether to cancel and replace the stock file or to update the stock file with the updates file. All the movements relating to one establishment over the month are aggregated, making the information easy to use.
The daily updates file is deposited during the night following the management day it concerns (file design XL2).
NB: the files are deposited a little later at the beginning of January and the beginning of July when the half-yearly matching of the dissemination database and the Sirene register is carried out.
2 - Simple lists to compile via the sirene.fr website. This product corresponds to simple selections that you can make yourself on the sirene.fr website. Each list can contain up to 100,000 establishments.
You can obtain a list of establishments meeting certain geographical criteria (region, department, municipality) and/or activity and/or legal form and/or workforce size classes and/or date of creation). File production is guaranteed and started every 5 minutes, with the files being made available on an INSEE delivery-collection platform and the list being automatically destroyed after 15 days.
