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.
