In our bid to enhance our business relationship with our vendors and ensure that their operations are guided professionally with the highest form of standards, we require all existing and intending vendors to register with FIPL. The services of a globally reputable company, Dun & Bradstreet have been engaged to support FIPL in this exercise. The company shall review vendor’s documents, conduct office, workshop, and business premises inspection to validate vendor’s claims on the registration document. Upon satisfactory review, the company shall be issued a DUNS Number Certificate.
A DUNS Number is a unique business status number that is provided only to companies that are certified to have met acceptable vendor registration requirements. The number gives the company the benefit of being part of a global database of credible companies that have been certified by Dun & Bradstreet, and the number can be quoted in all your correspondence with any company both locally and globally.
Companies who have paid the stipulated registration fee will be contacted by Dun & Bradstreet and required to provide some documents for the registration exercise: See below.
