GLEIF – LEI VA Framework eBook
WHAT IS THE VALIDATION AGENT FRAMEWORK?
The Validation Agent (VA) framework is a newly approved role in the Global LEI System (GLEIS). It enables FIs, Banks, & Trust Service Providers to leverage and enhance existing validation processes to consolidate traditionally separate workflows for KYC, AML & LEI issuance.
VAs realise a variety of cost, efficiency and customer experience benefits by leveraging existing KYC and AML processes. VAs automatically obtain an LEI for customers when verifying a client’s identity during initial onboarding or during a client identity refresh.
HOW THE VA FRAMEWORK WORKS WITH RAPIDLEI?
The RapidLEI platform and API can be integrated into existing KYC and AML workflows to automate both the validation of legal entity validation data and the subsequent registration of the LEI with the GLEIS, all in real-time.
This unique approach ensures VAs gain legal entity data validation enhancements and register only accurate LEIs that meet GLEIS data quality requirements. VAs using RapidLEI with the VA framework enhance the overall reliability of KYC data in general, and reduce costs associated with repeat validation routines.
