Information regarding the LEI

GLEIS is a federal, international system of LEI issuing authorities that is managed by a central unit - the Global LEI Foundation (GLEIF) - in the form of a foundation and monitored by a superordinate regulator.

The supervision of the system is undertaken by the LEI Regulatory Oversight Committee (LEI-ROC), in which the envoys of the national finance market Financial Markets Authority (FMA) are represented.

The GLEIF is an instrument of the GLEIS and was initially established in the form of a foundation. It oversees the procedural interrelationship between the Local Operating Units (LOUs) - i.e. LEI issuing authorities - and itself or the LEI-ROC.

The LOUs are the national LEI issuing authorities. They securely identify and authenticate entities that request and wish to use LEIs.
