LEI Definition – reference data

The Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF) publishes and maintains the Global LEI Index. The index is a global, entity identifier database.

LEIs issued by LOUs are added to the LEI Index daily. An LEI Lookup accesses the organization’s associated LEI Data Record – including a historical record of:

  • Company name(s)
  • Legal and HQ address and country
  • The local business registry used to register the organization
  • The corroboration level (e.g. how the LOU verified the organization details)
  • The LEI Issuer

Anyone can access and search the LEI index (entity identifier database) on the GLEIF website using the web-based LEI search tool. See the LEI Developers area for more information.
