APIR Systems now acts as a Registration Agent for the London Stock Exchange (LSE) rather than a LEI issuing organisation (Local Operating Unit). The GLEIF defines a Registration Agent as "a third party service provider that assists the LEI issuing organisation with the performance of its duties in the Global LEI System". As requirements have become more complex APIR has decided to partner with the LSE and they will now send details of the registrant to the LSE for validation, approval and issuing of the LEI.
The Saudi Credit Bureau (SACB / Moa'rif) has now become an accredited LEI issuing organisation,
bringing the number of accredited LOUs to 13. For further information click here.
