Served Jurisdictions

What does 'the jurisdictions served by LOU' mean?

The regulatory requirements of the Global LEI Foundation (GLEIF) establish that the Local Operating Unit (LOU) accredited by GLEIF is authorized to provide services on LEI codes only in those jurisdictions that are approved by the GLEIF for the giving LOU. GLEIF approves the jurisdictions after the LOU successful completion of the GLEIF accreditation program for the associated jurisdictions.

The Local Operating Unit may, from time to time, change its list of jurisdictions, i.e. add new or remove previously served jurisdictions. The list of served LOU jurisdictions is changed in accordance with the standard procedure set by GLEIF.

Information on served jurisdictions by LOUs is published on the GLEIF website and is updated once a month based on the results of the accumulation of changes across all LOUs.

NSD will research the working conditions in the requested countries and, in case of a positive decision, conduct the activities established by the GLEIF procedure to add it to the NSD’s portfolio of jurisdictions.
