LEIROC publishes interim common data format: LEIROC has published a common data format to be used by pre-Local Operating Units (pre-LOUs) as a standard for publishing LEI data during the interim global LEI system. The format distinguishes the information required by the relevant ISO standard from additional information important for the interpretation of the data and from other information necessary to accommodate local variations. Technical specifications will follow. Additional reference data, such as on ownership and hierarchical relationships, may be introduced at a later stage in response to regulators' and users' needs.
