Question: What is the D&B Supplier Evaluation Risk Rating?
Answer: The D&B Supplier Evaluation Risk Rating (SER) predicts the likelihood that a business will deliver goods as promised over the next 12 months. This score is created using business history, payment habits, and industry norms. Scores range from 1 through 9, with 1 indicating the lowest risk, and 9 indicating a high risk of not delivering goods as promised.
