In support of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulatory guidance to industry for providing electronic submissions for Drug Establishment Registration and Drug Listing as well as Self-Identification, Dun & Bradstreet (D&B) is making available a new expedited DUNS Request Service.


Expedited DUNS Request Service
What is the expedited DUNS Request service?

Allows you to request D-U-N-S Numbers for your own business establishments or for your suppliers, U.S. agents, or importers.

The Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS®) Number is a unique nine-digit identification number provided by D&B. The DUNS® Number is randomly issued, never used twice and is site specific.  Each distinct physical location of an entity is assigned its own DUNS Number worldwide.

Requesting a DUNS® Number is a quick and easy process.  It is the responsibility of the pharmaceutical company to obtain the existing DUNS® Number (or to take the steps required to request a new DUNS® Number) for their manufacturing establishments, suppliers, U.S. agents and/or importers.

The following information is needed to request a DUNS® Number:

  • Legal Company Name
  • Tradestyle or Doing-Business-As-Company Name
  • Physical Address, City, State/Province and Postal Code
  • Telephone Number
  • Highest ranking official at establishment
  • Line of Business

The DUNS® Request Service is available for a fee of $14.95 per establishment look-up (plus applicable sales tax) and does not require a commitment to a D&B subscription. All charges will be applied to a customer provided credit card. There is not a minimum or maximum order requirement.
