Hi Sebastian, Kay,

If you haven't done it yet, I suggest getting in touch with Chris
Taggart of Open Corporates (cc'd). He has years of experience doing
this, and is also involved in cross-standards work on "organisational
identifiers", crucial in the development of for instance the Open
Contracting Data Standard and the International Aid Transparancy Initiative:

http://iatistandard.org/201/organisation-identifiers/
