Issuance of pre-legal entity identifiers
26 June 2013 at 13:49
All EU counterparties entering into derivative trades will need to have a pre-Legal Entity Identifier (pre-LEI) in order to meet the EMIR reporting obligations.
The issuance of pre-LEIs in line with the agreed principles for pre-Local Operating Unit solutions (LOUs) is currently underway.
The announcement of those entities which have been allocated a pre-LOU Prefix for pre-LEI Issuance is posted on the LEI Regulatory Oversight Committee (ROC) website and now includes the London Stock Exchange under the sponsorship of the Financial Conduct Authority.
Please see the LEI ROC website for more information.
