Step 1: Register

First you need to register and create an account in the LEI.direct portal. When logged in into your user account, you can then apply for one or more LEIs, renew your existing LEIs or conveniently transfer your LEI code from another LOU to GS1.

Step 2: Apply

The LEI application is just as easy as the registration. To fill out the application form you must first be registered and logged into your user account 

Instructions on the application process are available in the FAQs section / Downloads. There you can find a step by step guide to complete your LEI application.

Step 3: Receive your LEI

Once record validation is completed by the GS1 validation team, the record will have an LEI assigned and published to the LEI.direct portal. Standard LEI fulfillment averages 48 - 72 hours.
