Google Partners with Dun & Bradstreet to support our Advertiser verification processes. Dun & Bradstreet developed a globally recognised system that assigns unique identification numbers (D‑U‑N‑S®) for businesses worldwide.

By enroling with Dun & Bradstreet, you can obtain a D‑U‑N‑S® for your business which may help you expedite the Advertiser verification process. If you are not enrolled (or not sure), read below to learn more.
