HOW RAPIDLEI WORKS
RapidLEI is fully automated to make it easy for you to register, manage and use your LEIs efficiently. No paper form filling, printing, manual signing and scanning means more time to spend on running your business!
START WITH YOUR SECURE LEI ACCOUNT
Get started with an LEI management account. You just need your name and email to open the account, and from hereon all your LEIs will be kept safe and secure.
THEN WE FIND YOUR LEGAL ENTITY
Start a registration by typing your Legal Entity name and in real time we search the local and global business registries to find your company. We auto-fill the reference data we need to make it easy for you.
YOUR REGISTERED LEI IS PUBLISHED
Most LEI registrations are auto-verified, so once your newly issued LEI number is then published to the Global LEI Index – the master global directory of all Legal Entity Identifiers
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 organizations (like Ubisecure RapidLEI) become LEI Issuers after passing a stringent accreditation process.
Why do I need a Legal Entity Identifier?
2.3m+ 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 (KYB) and onboarding processes.
In the aftermath of the financial crisis, the G20, Financial Stability Board (FSB), and regulatory bodies worldwide introduced LEIs to provide greater transparency in the financial markets. Currently 300+ regulations and international standards (ISO) require or request the use of LEIs to determine legal entity transparency, assess risk, and prevent market manipulation

HOW TO REGISTER AN LEI
Registering your LEI will be quick and easy with RapidLEI. We’ve published a comprehensive LEI Registration guide in our knowledge base: Guide to Registering a Legal Entity Identifier. The LEI registration guide walks you through how to apply, pay, be verified and have your LEI published to the GLEIS (Global LEI System) database.
WHY DO LEGAL ENTITY IDENTIFIERS FROM RAPIDLEI COST LESS THAN OTHER ISSUERS?
In order for the tens of millions of organizations in the world to obtain an LEI code we need an LEI issuing platform that can scale. RapidLEI has 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 lower cost than our competitors.
DOES RAPIDLEI ISSUE ACCREDITED, RECOGNIZED 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 organizations like Bloomberg LEI, DTCC (GMEI Utility LEI), the LSEG (London Stock Exchange Group) UK LEI issuer, and others. We supply registration, renewal and other LEI services for legal entities wishing to utilize LEIs. RapidLEI is the largest LEI Issuer as shown in the GLEIF LEI statistics.
WHO IS THE GLEIF?
The Global LEI Foundation (GLEIF) was established by the Financial Stability Board and the G20 in 2014. The GLEIF is responsible for ensuring the operational integrity of the Global LEI System. It works with Local Operating Units (LOUs), like RapidLEI, to ensure that the LEI remains a broad public good available to all stakeholders.
In addition, the GLEIF also provides services to support the wider use of the LEI in the global economy, including managing data quality, issuance regulation and new use-cases to ensure that the LEI remains a trusted and useful organization identifier.
HOW FAST IS RAPIDLEI GROWING?
Since launching in 2018 the GLEIF has consistently recognized RapidLEI has the fastest growing LEI Issuer. RapidLEI is the largest issuer of LEIs globally and the #1 LEI Issuer for data quality. You can track LEI growth and data quality statistics from RapidLEI, DTCC (GMEI Utility LEI), and Bloomberg LEI at rapidlei.com/stats.
DO YOU HAVE TO BE A COMPANY TO GET AN LEI?
LEI numbers can be issued to registered companies and subsidiaries, non-profit organizations, sole proprietors, international branch offices, funds and trusts. Read more about LEI for funds and trusts.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR LEI REGISTRATION?
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 (click for LEI transfer process).
HOW DO I FIND OUT IF MY LEI IS LAPSED, INACTIVE OR INVALID?
You can use our free LEI Search tool to find out the current status. We connect to the global LEI index to check, and depending on status our system will help you renew, register, or reactivate a lapsed LEI quickly (click for urgent lapsed lei issues).
WHO IS UBISECURE?

We develop SaaS, cloud solutions, and on-premise software for Identity & Access Management.
