We have now fully resolved the incident that was causing the intermittent error 500 responses on our API service. The root cause has been identified and we have already begun work to improve the resilience of those subsystems that were found to be at fault.
Many thanks for your continued patience.

OpenCorporates APIElevated API error rate
We have identified a problem with our API service, which is resulting in an elevated rate of 500 errors for our users.
These errors are sporadic and intermittent, so please keep trying the service if you receive any of these errors.
We have identified the root cause and we expect that the frequency of these errors will tail off to nothing throughout the day.
We will provide a further update as we make more observations.
