LEI Code Legal Entity Identifier for Bucharest Stock Exchange

7/11/2017

Bucharest Stock Exchange (BVB) informs that the company holds a Legal Entity Identifier Code (LEI code), as part of the process of alignment with the requirements imposed on financial market participants by the most recent European package of measures (MAD/MAR and MIFID II/MIFIR), applicable also to the issuers of financial instruments.

The Legal Entity Identifier (LEI index) is a 20-digit, alpha-numeric code based on the ISO 17442:2012 standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), that enables clear and unique identification on a global level of legal entities participating in financial transactions. Thus, the LEI code enhances the trust among the market participants.

The LEI index for Bucharest Stock Exchange is the following: 2549004BOCU15LMNDJ92, information that can be primarily used to meet reporting requirements based on MAR and MIFIR provisions.

The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) recently announced that the Financial Instruments Reference Data System (FIRDS) becomes operational as of July, 17. The issuers of financial instruments will make available LEI code details to allow data transmission to this system by the BVB, as the trading venue where these instruments are traded.
