LEI Data GLEIF Concatenated Files

Download the Concatenated Files


The Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF) publishes three separate ‘Concatenated Files’ daily. The Concatenated Files include Legal Entity Identifiers (LEIs) and related LEI reference data published by the LEI issuing organizations. GLEIF does not modify any of the original source files.

The GLEIF Concatenated Files, which are available for download, include specific information on LEI records based on the relevant Common Data File (CDF) format.

Level 1 LEI-CDF Concatenated File: Learn more

It contains Level 1 data, i.e. LEI records and related reference data that provide information on who is who based on the LEI-CDF format.

Level 2 Relationship Record (RR) CDF Concatenated File: Learn more

The Level 2 RR-CDF Concatenated File contains the Level 2 data to answer the question of ‘who owns whom’ based on the RR-CDF format. It allows the identification of the direct and ultimate parents of a legal entity whose direct and ultimate parents have an LEI.

Level 2 Reporting Exceptions Concatenated File: Learn more

The LEI data pool includes Level 2 data to answer the question of ‘who owns whom’. Specifically, legal entities that have or acquire an LEI report their ‘direct accounting consolidating parent’ as well as their ‘ultimate accounting consolidating parent’. Exceptions are reported based on the Reporting Exceptions format. Exceptions include: The LEI registrant has no parent entity; the child legal entity opts out of reporting for exceptional reasons; the direct and ultimate parents of the LEI registrant do not have an LEI.

For more information, refer to 'About the Concatenated Files' and please take note of the 'LEI Data Terms of Use'.

If you find something you wish to question, you may submit a challenge to any LEI data record through GLEIF’s central challenge facility.
