What is an LEI Certificate?
An LEI certificate is a document that contains your company’s information based on your legal entity identifier (LEI) data. The LEI is based on an international standard (ISO 17442) and is endorsed by G20 countries. The LEI aims to standardise information regarding legal entities around the globe.
LEI Register has trustworthy information on all the LEIs published in the world. Our database runs on a global LEI standard and has trustworthy/corroborated information that is kept up to date with annual data renewals. Your LEI Certificate will be published electronically on all LEI Register's websites around the world (35 websites). You will receive an electronic document on your email and you can also order a paper document (A4 hard copy) if you wish. We will have it delivered in 10 working days.
Why should I get an LEI Certificate?
It is very common that your bank, broker or other investment service provider may ask for your LEI or proof of it while opening an account or before making a financial transaction. This is where the LEI Certificate will come in handy. You can forward an electronic LEI Certificate via email to their onboarding team or upload it to your bank account or trader's cabinet. We also offer a physical paper certificate that you can order to your office.
An LEI is required from any legal entity that regularly incorporates financial transactions. This includes buying stocks, bonds and other securities. Some jurisdictions also require legal entities to obtain an LEI to make them easily identifiable. There are also a number of industries that are now required to apply for an LEI.

What is an LEI Tag?
An LEI Tag is an informational data source that you can display on your website to help indicate the legal entity behind the website. Website visitors can view your company’s basic information, such as the legal name and address, by clicking on the LEI Tag. By clicking on “learn more” on the LEI Tag, a new tab will be opened with your company's LEI Certificate page on the LEI Register website that shows your complete company profile based on your LEI data.

What is an LEI Tag+?
An LEI Tag+ is a token that comes with an LEI Tag. An LEI Tag+ shows that the company displaying it is compliant with the LEI requirements and has been issued one. An LEI is an ISO 17442:2019 standard and by applying for an LEI you are proving your organisation's commitment to achieving transparency standards and increasing the credibility of your company. An LEI Tag+ is also linked to your company's LEI Certificate page on the LEI Register website that has all the information based on your LEI.
An LEI Tag and an LEI Tag+ can be used on the same website simultaneously, but you can also display either one of them. An LEI Tag+ can be displayed anywhere on your website. Learn how to implement it on your website from below
Why should I get an LEI Tag?
In some countries it is required that companies display their name on their website. While this requirement does not necessarily apply to every single page, a company’s name needs to be easily accessible to visitors so they can validate the legal entity behind the site. Even if this requirement does not apply in your country, it is good practice to display your company’s data to build trust with your website’s visitors. An LEI Tag also indicates that you have an active LEI code, which makes your company more trustworthy. This helps increase the chance that people will interact with your website.
Can I display this information myself or use some other trust mark?
Yes, you can display all this information yourself or use another company that sells trust marks.
However, many companies who sell trust marks do not actually validate your information after the initial application. An LEI, on the other hand, must be renewed annually. During an LEI renewal your company’s data is validated based on local business registries. If your LEI is renewed, the LEI Certificate and Tag will show its status as “Active”. If your LEI is not renewed, the LEI Certificate and Tag will show the LEI is “Inactive” which means that your information has expired.
Getting an LEI Tag on your website indicates that you have gone a step further and validated your information with a global standard like an LEI (ISO 17442) and your information is public and you have an LEI Certificate. With an LEI Tag, you will be directly linked to your LEI Certificate and you can display that to your customers to create more trust.

How to implement the LEI Tag on your website?
Here is an Html script snippet that you would have to copy-paste to the <head> of your website.
Replace XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX with your company’s LEI code:
To get the dark blue version of the LEI Tag instead of the lighter white version, use the color=dark attribute:
After that, the clickable LEI Tag with valid information about your LEI and company will appear in the bottom-right corner of your website.
One easy solution would be to install for example the Insert Headers and Footers plugin to allow easy copy-pasting on script snippets to your website. Follow the instructions on how to install the plugin and copy-paste the LEI Tag snippet to the header box in the WordPress admin. You could also add it as custom code if you have developed custom plugins on your website.
Basically the same approach as mentioned for WordPress, but for Drupal, is to use the Header and Footer Scripts module:
How to implement the LEI Tag+ on your website?
Here is an Html snippet that contains the link and the image of the LEI Tag+ symbol that you would have to copy-paste to wherever you like within your website. Common places to place the image would be in the header, footer or on some page that has information about your service.
Replace XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX with your company’s LEI code:
<a href="https://www.legalentityidentifier.co.uk/leicert/?lei=XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX&utm_source=website&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=tagplus" id="leitagplus"><img src="https://www.legalentityidentifier.co.uk/leitag/gold.svg" height="50px"/></a>
To get the silver version of the LEI Tag+ instead of the gold version, use the silver.svg image:
<a href="https://www.legalentityidentifier.co.uk/leicert/?lei=XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX&utm_source=website&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=tagplus" id="leitagplus"><img src="https://www.legalentityidentifier.co.uk/leitag/silver.svg" height="50px"/></a>
After that, the clickable LEI Tag+ logo will appear on your site exactly where you placed it.
Note that you can change the size of the image by changing the height attribute in the html snippet. For more advanced styling and exact positioning of the image you can use the #leitagplus ID in your CSS style.
