Corporate Register

The Corporate Register is a database of Brazilian and foreign companies


interested in participating in biddings for Petrobras.
These companies, either Brazilian or foreign, are eligible to provide to
Petrobras high complexity services or equipment/goods, which are under
Petrobras permanent interest.
The evaluation approval, as part of the registration process,
ensures the incorporation of the company in the Petrobras
Corporate Register, obtaining the CRCC Certificate of
Registration and Classification. Then, the company could be
invited to participate in new biddings.
