1 - Simple search

To make a simple search, you may:

  • Enter a DUNS* number, or the company’s name,

  • Select the country in which the company is located: mandatory if it’s a company name, and optional if you have entered a DUNS number

2 - Advanced search – How do I search based on other data elements?

  • By name:

    • Country: required field

    • For Canada and the United States, a list of provinces or states is provided (their information is not compulsory).

    • Address (Street number, Street name, Postal code, City).

  • By DUNS: obligation to enter the 9 digits of the DUNS.

  • By Local Identifier: any Local Identifier is supported (registration number, VAT number…)

    • Country: mandatory field to be completed with the local identifier.

Other fields can be combined with each of the 3 search modes above: Active and Headquarters.

3 - Advanced search - Manager search

The search by Manager-option will allow you to identify all the roles -shareholder and leader- a physical person plays in other companies worldwide. Full name or Last name is mandatory.

* The Dun & Bradstreet D‑U‑N‑S Number is a unique nine-digit identifier for businesses. This number is assigned once our patented identity resolution process, part of our DUNSRight methodology, identifies a company as being unique from any other in the Dun & Bradstreet Data Cloud.
