WHAT IS A LEGAL ENTITY IDENTIFIER?

A Legal Entity Identifier is a 20-character identifier that identifies distinct legal entities. It is defined by ISO 17442 standard, endorsed by the G20 and acts as “the one identity behind every business”. As of September 2019 over 1.5m legal entities worldwide have registered LEIs.

what is an lei

LEIs provide a publicly available verifiable source of ‘who is who’ (organization identity) and ‘who owns whom’ (organization group structures). The system operated by the Global LEI Foundation (GLEIF) and the ability to issue LEIs is awarded to a limited number of organizations (like RapidLEI) passing a stringent accreditation process to become LEI Issuers.

WHY YOU NEED AN LEI

Organizations with LEIs become part of the Global LEI System – the publicly available, live, and verifiable database of legal entities. They show commitment to communicating their verified status – good for corporate image, and even better to meet required regulation.

LEIs are required for a number of identity reporting requirements including MiFID II, MiFIR, EMIR, Frank Dodd and more. These regulations add much needed transparency to financial transactions and trades.

Driven by the GLEIF and innovative LEI Issuers like RapidLEI, and leading Certification Authorities, exciting new use cases are being developed for LEIs. LEIs are now used to represent the legal entity identity in xBLR reports, digital signature applications and other PKI enabled services.

It allows an organizational signatory to be connected to its disclosures, providing greater assurance about the data’s source and veracity.” Starting in January 2020, IFRS Financial Reports must be filed in the European Single Electronic Format (ESEF) which requires the xBRL format.
