French term or phrase: filiation/pere
Does "pere" refer to a parent company? I've only seen "mere" before. I understand "filiation" but am not sure of the best translation. Thanks, Karen(don't know what DR refers to; I'm still waiting for a response from the client)

Il est donc nécessaire que l’ensemble des fiches concernant les représentations des clients européens présents dans les DR et qui sont rattachés par un lien de filiation (Groupe/père) à un client européen, soient renseignés avec le plus grand soin et le maximum de rigueur.
