We remind you that reporting the financial relationships of your company is mandatory in order to obtain a LEI.
This declaration is now done in one step only in the « Report a financial relationship » section.

The G20 endorsed at the Los Cabos Summit in June 2012 a Global Legal Entity Identifier System (GLEIS) which uniquely identifies parties to financial transactions. The GLEIS aims at facilitating risk management and risk control by both the private sector and public authorities. The European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) has imposed its use for some derivative instruments since Febuary 2014.

This unique identifier for market participants is known as the « Legal Entity Identifier » (LEI), defined in the ISO 17442 standard.

The establishment of the GLEIS is led by the Financial Stability Board (FSB), which enabled a structure made up of Local Operating Units (LOU) providing LEI and a Central Operating Unit (COU) ensuring consistency. The Regulatory Oversight Committee, representing public authorities (ROC) oversees the system, making sure the G20 principles are observed (non profit-making, public interest, ...)
