Geiportal.org Adopts LEI Common File Format

To enhance data quality, but also to be able to use LEI data in a more effective manner, all Local Operating Units (LOUs) worldwide have been required to publish their data in a standard file format, the LEI Common File Format (CFF).

Geiportal.org has implemented this requirement. On its website, it offers users to download the entire GEI data pool as .XML file in the new, uniform format (LEI-CFF). In addition, geiportal.org will continue to provide its data in the usual .XML files until the end of the year.

For more information on the structure of CFF, please read:
