Business Information Report enquiries which are placed with D&B's Emerging Markets Centre should always contain the below details. Unfortunately, enquiries without the below information have a much higher chance of being returned as an Unable To Locate Report. This is simply due to the fact that data sources in the Emerging Markets are not as sophisticated as those in Western Europe.

  • Full Company Name
  • Full Head Quarters Address (street, town, country)
  • Telephone Number
  • Fax Number

Any additional information such as a contact name or line of business would also help to locate the subject of your enquiry.
