Shareholder register is a list of investors (individual or corporate) that own shares of the company. The list is being updated regularly to show current shareholders. Each shareholder is registered, however, only some of them are shown to the public (depends on country regulation, usually owners of more than 5% of shares). Based on shareholder register can be issued certificate of ownership for shareholder.
Shareholder register is available for anyone. For shareholders usually free, but some fees for non-shareholders may apply. Country regulations can define additional rules that apply, e.g. level of detail of shareholder data, methods of presentation, how fast and how often to update the shareholder register.
