The Reason for registering field is a mandatory field, providing 2 options:  

1. My organization has been requested to discloser

The first option, "My organization has been requested to disclose" is for companies that have disclosed through CDP previously and are expecting to receive one or more requests to disclose. 

Once selected, this will prompt you to provide the name of the requesting company. This is a free text field, and users are encouraged to provide the full company name they are expecting to receive a request from, which will be used to help verify their organization.
