The Legal Entity Identifier Regulatory Oversight Committee - LEIROC

Welcome to the Web page of the Regulatory Oversight Committee (ROC) of the Global Legal Entity Identifier System (GLEIS).

The ROC is a committee of authorities from around the world working to coordinate and oversee a global system of legal entity identification.  The Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) is a 20-digit, alpha-numeric code that connects to key reference information that enables clear and unique identification of companies participating in global financial markets. 

The ROC, a stand-alone committee established after recommendations by the international Financial Stability Board (FSB) and subsequent endorsement by the Group of 20 (G-20) nations, held its inaugural meeting in January 2013.  According to the FSB Report to the G-20, the ROC oversees the GLEIS so that "there is a unique identifier for each entity that registers, and that there are reliable, while flexible, operational principles and standards applied to the origination and maintenance of an LEI."   

The ROC has a plenary of members and observers from more than 70 authorities, as well as a regionally balanced Executive Committee that takes forward its work.  The ROC is also supported by its standing Committee on Evaluation and Standards, and a Secretariat located in Basel, Switzerland.
