I need a LEI
In accordance with recording and reporting obligations under Swiss law (see art. 39 of the Financial Market Infrastructure Act and the transitional provisions of the corresponding ordinance) and under European law (MiFID II/MiFIR and EMIR), numerous businesses such as banks, credit institutions, investment funds, insurance companies, securities services providers and foundations must have a Legal Entity Identifier (LEI).
GS1 Switzerland is an official registration body that lets you either apply for a new LEI or initiate for free the transfer of an existing one.
Your request will be processed via our sister organisation GS1 Germany. It has been officially accredited as a Local Operating Unit (LOU) by the Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF).
