UPIK® - Unique Partner Identification Key

What is a D-U-N-S Number?

The D&B D-U-N-S Number (Data Universal Numbering System) is a non-classifying 9-digit key that uniquely identifies companies worldwide. It was developed by D&B and launched in 1962. Today it is the key to data on more than 120 million companies worldwide.


In what way does D&B support UPIK®?

In cooperation with UPIK® partners, D&B develops the UPIK® online platform for setting up and maintaining your own communication data. D&B's unique worldwide resources and its broad range of information support the UPIK® identification system in providing access to a standardized and trusted database for business decisions at any time.


Which additional services does D&B offer to support the business processes of the automotive and supply industries?

D&B supports displaying companies by means of business units between which the different transactions (orders, release orders, exchange of documentation, etc.) take place.

Initially, this is only available for a limited number of countries*. UPIK® and D&B are continuously expanding the number of countries for which a D&B D-U-N-S Number can be requested as regards different business units at the same location.
