CFTC and ESMA to agree mutual acceptance process for LEIs

The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) has issued
an Amended Order expanding, through mutual acceptance by international
regulators, the list of Legal Entity Identifiers (LEIs) that can be used by
registered entities and swap counterparties in complying with CFTC’s swap data
reporting regulations. 


This means that registered entities and swap counterparties will
no longer be required to solely use the CFTC Interim Compliant Identifiers
(CICIs) provided by DTCC-SWIFT where certain conditions are met.  This
paves the way for the use of General Entity Identifiers (GEIs) recently issued
by WM Datenservice a European utility which like CICIs are anticipated to
become LEIs in the global system.
