D&B’s Data Universal Numbering System, commonly known as the D-U-N-S® Number, was developed in 1963 to identify businesses worldwide. It is easy to obtain, simple to use.
Centrally allocated and managed by D&B, each number is unique and permanent and is issued only to commercial or entrepreneurial entities and locations.
The D-U-N-S® Number enhances your credibility as a legitimate business entity and allows you to present a more robust profile to potential partners when moving into new ventures or markets. It also allows you to integrate internal databases into a standardized format.
