Frequently Asked Questions

The Legal Entity Identifier (LEI code) is a 20-digit, alphanumeric code that connects to key reference information enabling clear and unique identification of companies participating in global financial markets. The LEI code is based on the ISO standard 17442 developed by the International Organization for Standardization.

All legal entities who are participating in the financial markets are obliged to have an LEI code starting from January 3, 2018. Learn more here.

The LEI code associates a legal entity with key information, which allows legal entities participating in global financial markets to be clearly and uniquely identified. LEI codes are already used to identify the parties to EMIR derivative instruments transactions and due to the application of implementing regulation EU/2017/105, no other alternative codes can be used when providing notification of transactions made with derivative instruments starting from November 1, 2017. The LEI code shall be used for reporting as of January 3, 2018, pursuant to the MiFID II and MiFIR regulation, transaction reports shall, among other things, also be used for investigating market abuse. The format of the transaction reports is established by an implementation regulation of the European Commission.

Legal entities that have been assigned the right to provide investment services are obliged to notify surveillance authorities of transactions made with the securities of a legal entity client by using the LEI code. In case a legal entity client does not have an LEI code, the reporting obligation cannot be performed and as a result the transaction orders of such legal entities cannot be fulfilled. In accordance with the European regulation, the LEI code must be used to identify the contracting parties to financial market transactions worldwide and make it easier for regulators to recognize possible systemic risks at an early stage. The ultimate aim is to better manage financial risks.

Local Operating Units (LOU) of the Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF) are responsible for the registration of interested entities and the issuance of LEI codes. The GLEIF exercises operational controls over the implementation of the LEI issuance process and ensures world-wide uniform standards in the global LEI system (GLEIS). The system is supervised by the Regulatory Oversight Committee (ROC) established by the Financial Stability Board and approved by G-20. There is a number of service providers and the selection can be made freely.

The LEI code shall be issued for a fee and is also subject to a yearly renewal fee.
