GLEIF published the LEI-CDF format version 3.1, the Relationship Record-CDF format version 2.1 and the Reporting Exceptions format version 2.1 to adhere to the following three ROC policies: Legal Entity Events (formerly referred to as “Corporate Actions”) and Data History in the Global LEI System Policy, Policy on Fund Relationships and Guidelines for the registration of Investment Funds in the Global LEI System and the LEI Eligibility for General Government Entities Guidance Document.
Supporting technical specification documents and the corresponding XML schema definitions for upgrading to the current versions of the Common Data File (CDF) formats are available for download in the table below.
Additionally, GLEIF provides sample files (XML, JSON, and CSV) and a sample GLEIF API response for verifying and testing the LEI data in the current versions. These sample files relate to the GLEIF Concatenated Files as well as the GLEIF Golden Copy and Delta Files.
The below table represents the current versions of the CDF formats and their supporting documents and example files.
Note: For LEI Search file exports, the format is the same as the example files of the Golden Copy mentioned above.
