The Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF) Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) Look-up API provides developers with the opportunity to directly access the complete LEI data pool in real time and to perform on-demand checks for changes to specific LEI records in a convenient, easy-to-read format.
The API responds to market needs as identified during a beta test, carried out in 2017, which involved multiple LEI stakeholders including financial institutions, regulators, fintech companies and analysts seeking to include LEI data in automated processes.
GLEIF provides services that empower market participants to take advantage of the wealth of information available within the LEI data pool.
The GLEIF LEI Look-up API further contributes to meeting this goal by enabling any interested party to quickly obtain updates with regard to a pre-defined list of up to 200 LEI records.
Some examples of usage are:
Use of the API is free of charge and does not require registration. GLEIF does not enter into individual contractual relationships or administrative processes with specific users of the LEI data.
If your organization needs to register GLEIF as a third party provider, you can find our company registration details here.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically, once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change. As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset, we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb. If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way, the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
So far, we don't have a record of any changes to this API
