On March 16, 2015, the US Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System announced a proposal requiring banking organizations to include their existing Legal Entity Identifiers on certain regulatory reporting forms as of June 30, 2015. The LEI is a unique reference code that enables easier identification of a firm’s legal entities. Comments on the proposal are requested within 60 days of publication in the Federal Register. 

The Proposal is available at: http: //www.federalreserve.gov/newsevents/press/bcreg/bcreg20150316a1.pdf.
