The U.S. National Numbering Agency, CUSIP Global Services, Partners With CICI Utility To Enhance And Expand Legal Entity Identification

"Given our role in providing unique identification for instruments, their issuers and obligors, as well as our active role in legal entity standards development, partnering with the CICI Utility at this time makes perfect sense," said Scott Preiss, Vice President of CUSIP Global Services. "We are confident that global market participants will be the beneficiary of this important collaboration."

"We are pleased to join CGS in this endeavor and look forward to providing users with an integrated and efficient approach to assigning CICIs ," said Ron Jordan, DTCC Managing Director and Chief Data Officer.

The CICI Utility and CGS will operate in accordance with the principles set forth by the FSB Implementation Group for the LEI initiative, operating on a cost recovery basis and making the LEIs and associated data publicly available, free of charge and free of restrictions on redistribution. CGS is partnering with the CICI Utility to further its reach as a single pre-LOU (and later, LOU) helping it cover a wide segment of entities that will require LEIs within the community of issuers.  Both the CFTC and NAIC have mandated the use of CICI/LEI for use in reporting transactions/positions by their respective markets.
