CSDR: LEI for issuers required by New Issues


In accordance with the Central Securities Depositories Regulation (CSDR), Clearstream Banking AG1, in its capacity as a central securities depository (CSD) is obliged to request the submission of Legal Entity Identifiers (LEI). Clearstream Banking informs customers that the admission requests have been modified in order to comply with this requirement.

The modified requests can be used with immediate effect in order to allow for a smooth transition to the new standard, which becomes mandatory effective

1 April 2018

Clearstream Banking provides customers with an admission request example for each category of securities. They show how to complete the forms and give useful information on items where further explanation may be appropriate.

The new admission requests and examples are available under Admission requests collective safe custody (English versions will be published soon).

Customers of our EDTClassic, Premium, Security Box or Trades Only services that have not yet provided their LEI are asked to send their LEI to edtadmissions@clearstream.com.

Should you need assistance to obtain an LEI, LuxCSD’s multi lingual service team provides services for multiple jurisdictions.

LuxCSD is a fully accredited Local Operating Unit (LOU) to issue Legal Entity Identifiers (LEI).  If you are interested in having your LEI data managed by LuxCSD and benefit from our support, please refer to LuxCSD receives accreditation for issuance of Legal Entity Identifiers or contact LuxCSD’s LEI Service via email to lei.service@luxcsd.com
