In response to enquiries on the eligibility of individuals acting in a business capacity to register for an LEI, LEIROC has issued a statement. LEIROC clarifies that individuals acting in a business capacity are eligible to obtain LEIs, provided they conduct an independent business activity as evidenced by registration in a business registry, with only one LEI issued for the same individual and adequate verifications that data protection, privacy or other obstacles do not prevent the publication of the current LEI data file.
