D&B Country Code Change

New country codes for D&B Direct have been developed to reflect global and/or regional changes such as country name changes and new countries forming. As of September 16, 2016, the old country codes will no longer be available or processed when given in the request. All D-U-N-S Numbers available in a local market, including out of business records, will use the new D&B Country Codes. Linkage of records using Domestic Ultimate D-U-N-S and Global Ultimate D-U-N-S will also use the new country codes. Their related family-tree records will be updated accordingly. Below are some of the communication and supporting migration details for the recent country code changes.
