LEI code

An LEI (Legal Entity Identifier) code is an international organisational code which identifies all companies and organisations using derivative contracts on the financial market.

Organisations affected by the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR), EU 648/2012 require LEI codes.

The following entities can apply for LEI codes using PRH paper forms:

  • business operators registered at the Trade Register
  • foundations registered at the Register of Foundations
  • other entities with Business IDs that have to be identified on the financial markets, such as investment funds or public bodies

In addition to allocated LEI codes, you can search for new or changed details on the LEI files search page by manually downloading files including all LEI codes (Full), or files with changes or new codes allocated on a certain day (Delta).

You can automatically download a file (Full) with all LEI details using the URL address https://tietopalvelu.ytj.fi/leitiedostot/tiedostolataus.aspx?date=YYYYMMDD, where YYYY is the year, MM the month, and DD the day.
