LEI System | GLEIF Accreditation of LEI Issuers

Current Candidates


The first phase of the Accreditation Process requires the organization seeking to become a Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) issuer, i.e. the Applicant Local Operating Unit (LOU), to create an accreditation plan. Once the plan is approved by the Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF), and GLEIF and the Applicant LOU sign the Master Agreement, the Applicant LOU is considered a Candidate LOU and the second phase of the accreditation process begins.

All Candidate LOUs are publicly disclosed on the GLEIF website as noted below. The list of fully operational LEI issuers can be viewed here.
