Who can register in the Bodybuilder Database?

Basically every body builder (BB) can register providing it has a DUNS number, is prepared to submit its master data and accepts a data protection agreement.

What is DUNS number?

A DUNS (Data Universal Numbering System) number is a nine-digit numerical code. It provides a means of identifying companies all over the world. This allows companies to be allocated in relation to their parent companies, subsidiaries, headquarters and branches. A DUNS number is a prerequisite for registration in the Bodybuilder Database. The number is available free of charge from the bisnode of D&B Deutschland GmbH at:

What is a main administrator?

Several people can be registered in the Bodybuilder Database under the name of one company. The person whom the company registers first is automatically the main administrator. He/she can add other people to his/her company, and they then receive their own access. Only the main administrator can apply for other employee accesses for the company. If you wish to change the main administrator of your company, please get in touch with the contact who is responsible for you.
