Country Codes Handling and Exceptions

Many of the D&B Direct web services expect to receive a country code for the company specified by the D-U-N-S Number being requested. This input parameter is case-sensitive and must be supplied in upper case. On some requests, this parameter is optional; however, D&B recommends that it be provided to reduce the response time of the service(s) -- including products limited to results for US companies.

D&B Direct services utilize the two-letter country code as defined by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in their ISO 3166-1 specification.
