To register for an LEI, please take the following steps:

  1. Create a new user profile.

  3. Click on “Register for an LEI” under the Dashboard on My Portal page.
  4. Perform an LEI Search to ensure that the Requesting Entity has not been issued an LEI.

    • The reference in the official business registry to the registered entity, where applicable e.g. company registration number (Business Register Entity ID)
    • A signed Authorisation Letter printed on the requesting entity’s letterhead
  6. Upload supporting documents. We require that you submit us the full extract of the legal entity’s details with one of the business registers. Click here for sample documents.
  7. Upload signed authorisation letter.
  8. Submit LEI registration form.
  9. Pay for the LEI registration request (using MasterCard or Visa, or opt for EFT).
  10. Wait for the validation process to complete (within 5 business days if no extensive queries are raised and all supporting documents are submitted by the user).
