D&B has created a free search tool which identifies companies that are located in the prefectures of Japan that have been impacted by the recent earthquake and tsunami. According to D&B, the information will help organizations to assess their exposure to financial and business continuity risk resulting from the disasters, as well as unfolding events at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station. The firm said it has identified about 150,000 businesses in the Fukushima, Miyagi and Iwate prefectures. Users of the tool can search by company name or DUNS number to determine whether an organization is located in the affected region. While the guide can identify companies in the impact zone, it cannot provide on-demand detailed reports due to conditions in the region, D&B noted. Organizations interested in the extent of impact to a specific business can order an investigation from the firm. Both customers and non-customers of D&B can order the updated Japan Risk Line report from the dnb.com website.
