Originally from ticket #1717.
Kepa is an NGO platform and an expert on global development. It represents more than 300 Finnish non-governmental organisations and promotes actions that will help to build a just world. We are about to register our NGO as an IATI publisher. We think that we should use the Finnish registration agency, Finnish Business Information System (http://www.ytj.fi/english/), and Business Identity Code, for the organisational identifier. This means that our organisational identifier would be: FI-BIS-0621340-2.
BIS=Business Information System
0621340-2 = Our Business Code
Would this be ok?

Follow up received from requester:
I think the relevant Finnish registration agency should actually be the Finnish Patient and Registration office: http://www.prh.fi/en/index.html
They maintain the register of associations: http://www.prh.fi/en/yhdistysrekisteri.html
See for example our information in their register: http://yhdistysrekisteri.prh.fi/pertied.htx?kieli=3&reknro=143138
Actually I think that it might be better to use their registration number in our organisational identifier rather than the business code we first thought.
