What is a Legal Entity Identifier?
LEIs are G20-endorsed identifier codes that provide a publicly available verifiable source of ‘who is who’ (organization identity) and ‘who owns whom’ (organization group structures). The system is operated by the Global LEI Foundation (GLEIF). A limited number of organisations (like Ubisecure) become LEI Issuers (also known as LOUs in the LEI ecosystem) after passing a stringent accreditation process.
Why do I need a Legal Entity Identifier?
1.6m+ organizations have Legal Entity Identifiers and are considered part of the Global LEI System – the publicly available, live, and verifiable database of legal entities. Organizations should have LEIs to be compliant with regulation, enable trust in their identity and assert their legitimacy. LEIs are used in many B2B Know Your Customer and onboarding processes.
Legal Entity Identifier Frequently Asked Questions
WHY DO LEIs FROM RAPIDLEI COST LESS THAN OTHER ISSUERS?
In order for every organisation in the world to register an LEI code we need an LEI issuing platform that can scale. We built a solution that automates the LEI application process by connecting to the worldwide business registries in real time. This makes applications faster, and it makes the operational costs much lower. We pass on these savings to you by providing LEIs at a much lower cost than any of our competitors.
DOES RAPIDLEI ISSUE ACCREDITED, RECOGNISED LEIS?
RapidLEI is one of about 30 accredited LEI Issuers, also known as LOUs (Local Operating Units). RapidLEI was accredited in June 2018 and we sit alongside organisations like Bloomberg, DTCC, the LSE and others as we supply registration, renewal and other LEI services for legal entities wishing to utilize LEIs.
WHO IS THE GLEIF?
The Global LEI Foundation (GLEIF) was established by the Financial Stability Board and the G20 in 2014. The GLEIF is tasked to support the implementation and use of the LEI.
HOW FAST IS RAPIDLEI GROWING?
Since launching in 2018 the GLEIF has consistently recognised RapidLEI has the fastest growing LEI Issuer. Throughout 2019 RapidLEI was the fastest growing LEIs and is now one of the largest issuer of new LEIs globally. As of March 2020, RapidLEI is the #1 issuer of new LEIs globally.
DO YOU HAVE TO BE A COMPANY TO GET AN LEI?
LEI numbers can be issued to registered companies and registered subsidiaries, non-profit organisations, sole proprietors, international branch offices, funds and trusts.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO REGISTER MY LEI?
The RapidLEI platform uses automation to make the LEI application process quick and easy. Many LEIs are issued in just minutes, but if company identity data needs additional human-based checks, it takes a little longer. If this is the case, we still issue your LEI in just hours, and almost always on the same day as application.
I ALREADY HAVE AN LEI, HOW DO I RENEW IT WITH RAPIDLEI?
Only the LOU managing the LEI can renew the LEI. If you want to renew an existing LEI with RapidLEI, you must first transfer it to RapidLEI. This is a simple process and our web forms guide you through the process.
HOW DO I FIND OUT IF MY LEI IS LAPSED, INACTIVE OR INVALID?
You can use our Search LEI tool to find out the current status. We connect to the global LEI database to check, and depending on status our system will help you renew or apply.
