LEI uses

At the G-20 Summit of June 2012, the heads of state and government encouraged "global adoption of the LEI to support authorities and market participants in identifying and managing financial risks" (see paragraph 44 of the G20 Communiqué).

The Global LEI System was established for a large range of potential uses including the following:

In addition to the use of the LEI for derivatives reporting, which has entered into force in major markets, authorities are extending reporting requirements for the LEI, where appropriate, to the banking sector, securities issuance, investment holdings for insurance and funds, and other uses such as identification of firms in credit registers. The ROC and its members remain committed to support the introduction of the Global LEI System as a unique identifier of parties to financial transactions.

ROC members have committed to support the introduction of the Global LEI System for official or international identification purposes.

Examples of laws and regulations can be found in the LEI ROC Progress Report of 30 April 2018, including 91rules or draft rules using the LEI in 45jurisdictions (see Annex 1 of the report). The table of regulatory uses in Annex 1 of the report is also accessible as an Excel file. An updated version of the table as of 30 June 2019 is presented below and a more detailed version is accessible as an Excel file. Examples are also available on the Global LEI Foundation website (see here).

EU39 EU draft amendment to the Money Market Statistical Reporting (MMSR) Regulation.    Securities regulation - Money markets: Money market statistical reporting (MMSR) data have been reported on a daily basis since 1 July 2016, covering information on the secured, unsecured, foreign exchange swap and euro overnight index swap money market segments on the basis of Regulation (EU) No 1333/2014 concerning statistics on the money markets (the MMSR Regulation). The MMSR dataset is based on transaction-by-transaction data reported from a sample of euro area reporting agents selected by the ECB pursuant to the criteria set out in the MMSR Regulation.
The amending Regulation further supports the reporting of the Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) of all counterparties that have been assigned an LEI. This requirement will benefit from the extended mandatory use of the LEI in reporting in the Union, and should reduce the reporting burden as reporting agents will no longer need to derive and report the sector and location of the counterparty when an LEI is available. MMSR makes use of reference information contained in the Register of Institutions and Affiliates Data (RIAD) by the European Central Bank (ECB).
  Requested Requested 52 MMSR reporting agents plus thousands of their counterparties draft See art Annexes I, II and III of the MMSR draft amending Regulation  https://www.ecb.europa.eu/stats/ecb_statistics/governance_and_quality_framework/consultations/shared/files/mmsr/draft_ecb_regulation_amending_Regulation_ECB_2014_48_concerning_statistics_on_the_money_markets.en.pdf
