It utilizes all available commercial data on that company, and applies judgmental modeling methodologies and local market expertise to assign the proper weights.

See the Predictive Analytics page for more information on Dun & Bradstreet's risk scores.

Lists of possible values (when present) are subject to change. Additional values not presented in this documentation may be delivered in the response and should be anticipated in any implementation.

Empty/NULL Values

A NULL returned for an element indicates that the information was not provided to D&B when the related data items were collected. The absence of a value for a particular item should not be considered indicative of any implied value (e.g., NULL for a boolean indicator is NOT the same as a value of 'false').

Currency Codes/Units

Whenever financial statement data is included in a response, each individual business element (ItemAmount) should be inspected for currency code and unit values (CurrencyISOAlpha3Code and UnitOfSize). If a given element does not include these attributes, the values provided in the statement header should be utilized.

Response Codes & Error Handling

Successful service requests will return a CM000 response code in the TransactionResult ResultID field. Otherwise, one of the D&B Direct standard response codes will be returned.

This operation may return the following response codes: CM001-CM005, CM007-CM012, CM014, CM017, CM018, PD001, PD003, PD005, PD006, PD015, PD016, and SC001-SC012.

D&B Direct 2.0 API requests are provided on a metered basis; and may require entitlement prior to use in the production environment. In addition, a concurrency limit (QPS) is monitored to ensure that it is not exceeded. An error code will be returned in the event that a transaction is throttled.

Qualified usage (e.g., a successful response) is tracked and billed according to the terms & conditions of the customer's contract. The response codes CM000, CM010, PD002 and PD015 are considered successful. A built-in feature exists to prevent duplicate billing when multiple successful requests with the same D-U-N-S Number and product code are submitted on the same calendar day (which is based on Eastern Standard Time [GMT-5]).

Retrieving Archived Copies

An option exists to retain the results from all successful requests for this product in a Product Request Archive, which may be retrieved without incurring additional usage charges.

Product Notes

The Emerging Market Mediation Alert (EMMA) is a country-specific, statistically based score that predicts the likelihood of a business in an emerging market to be problematic in paying its debts within twelve months from observation, and eventually going out-of-business.

Emerging markets do not have the pairings of trade behavior data and actual bankruptcy filings to pass D&B’s criteria for a standard delinquency or failure score. The EMMA score acknowledges that there are pockets of an emerging market’s database that are deserving of a risk score sooner, because such businesses are more popular as global suppliers and customers.

The availability of certain scores delivered by this product may be limited due to a lack of sufficient company or industry specific data to perform the calculations.
