There is no equivalent in the US for this. There you can check or have checked records at the court house,
which is in your jurisdiction or the
jurisdiction of the person/entity you
want to check. Most lawsuits/all real estate transactions are public record
there for anyone to see. However, if
one has a lien/lost a suit somewhere else, you would have not way of knowing it. TWR, Equifax etc. get court reports
and any tax liens/IRS liens reported and
so, this is also a venue to check for such things. But it is all in private hands and no official government office
exists for that purpose. The office de
poursuites is to my knowledge--also here
in Quebec--the department at the courthouse, where you check whether or not any legal proceedings are filed against anyone.

Good luck,
Lis

Debt Collection Office


Explanation:
Actually, I found "Betreibungs- und Konkursamt" in my financial dictionary:
Debt Collection and Bankrupcy Office (a municipal department). So I would say it is an audit by the Debt Collectio Office to determine wether the company has been sued. HTH, Eva
