Think about this section of the site as the source of knowledge about LEI codes and the LEI system.
Here you can find information about both the organisational structure of the LEI System and the more technical information regarding the code itself and its Master Data. We provide diagrams and code samples to explain the LEI system’s ‘wiring’. Finally, we explain how our LEI.INFO resolver works to deliver data in Semantic Web formats.
Read about the critical benefits of the LEI System and find out who needs the LEI code today. If you are interested in understanding the structure of the LEI Code, read about it here. Discover how the LEI CDF (Common Data Format) is used to encode “Who is Who” type of information and “Who owns Whom“. You can also find here the references to the core LEI Data files as published by GLEIF. If you want to understand how the LEI global system is goverened, read it here. If you want to know how to use LEI.INFO in more advanced way, follow this link. The Linked Data/Semantic architecture of LEI.INFO system is presented here. For our vision of LEI system based on Blockchain, see this.
