Apply for or renew your LEI number

The Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) number is a unique 20-digit alphanumeric number. The LEI number is used to identify companies and other legal entities operating in the securities market.

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).

As of 1 January 2022, LEIs for Swiss companies will be issued directly by GS1 Germany. If you have any questions, please contact GS1 Germany.
