Name Change: Geiportal.org Now Assigns LEI Instead of Pre-LEI

With the establishment of the Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF) in Basel starts a new chapter for the global LEI system, which has been in development for the past two years.
Effective immediately, all Pre-LEIs that have been assigned via geiportal.org will now be listed as LEIs. The agency specific term GEI (General Entity Identifier), which denotes a LEI that has been assigned via geiportal.org, will continue to be valid.

In this context, we would like to refer to a current essay on the LEI system written by Dr. Pankoke (BaFin): http://www.bafin.de
