The Financial Stability Board (FSB) is conducting a review on implementation of the Legal Entity Identifier (LEI). The objective of the review is to evaluate the progress made by FSB members – both national authorities and international bodies – in response to the G20 Leaders’ 2012 call for “global adoption of the LEI to support authorities and market participants in identifying and managing financial risks”. 

The review is also soliciting feedback from market participants on private sector uses of the LEI that may support regulatory objectives (e.g. to promote effective implementation of risk management frameworks and reduction of operational risks) as well as on possible challenges faced in acquiring and maintaining LEIs.

Feedback letters must be submitted by September 21, 2018.
