Legal Entity Identifier is a unique identity reference number allocated to a company in accordance with an internationally agreed standard administered by the Regulatory Oversight Committee (ROC) of the Global Legal Entity Identifier System (GLEIS).

The ROC is a stand-alone committee established by the international Financial Stability Board (FSB) and endorsed by the Group of 20 (G-20) nations.

It held its inaugural meeting in January 2013.

The ROC in turn has authorised Local Operating Units (LOU) which generate and issue the LEIs.
