How to Get a D-U-N-S Number

If you want to apply for a D-U-N-S Number, you are in the right place. Before you start the D-U-N-S Number registration process, make sure you don’t already have one. Use our D-U-N-S Number lookup tool to see if you are already in the Dun & Bradstreet database.

Step 1

Choose the option that best fits your company:

  • I have a U.S.-based business
  • I have a Canada-based business
  • I’m an Apple developer
  • I’m a U.S. Government Contractor or Grantee
  • I need a UFI to register with the FDA
Step 2

Fill out the information requested. Based on your choice, you may need to provide the following information:

  • The legal name of your business
  • Your business address (Note: if you have multiple locations, apply for a separate D-U-N-S Number for each location)
  • Business phone number
  • The name of the business owner, president, or CEO
  • The legal structure of the business
  • The year the business was created
  • The primary business industry
  • The total number of full- and part-time employees
Step 3
During the checkout process, you will be asked whether you want to expedite your D-U-N-S Number request. This is not required. There is no charge to receive a D-U-N-S Number. Normal processing can take up to 30 business days. If you purchase an expedited* D-U-N-S Number you can get your D-U-N-S Number within eight business days*.
Step 4

You may be contacted by a representative of Dun & Bradstreet to validate your information. Once your information has been authenticated, the process is complete. You will receive your D-U-N-S Number in an email from Dun & Bradstreet.
