All are welcome to ask ECCMA to research their ALEI or the ALEIs of their customers or suppliers and these are added to eALEI.org . As a result, your ALEI may already be in the eALEI.org database so start your search by entering your legal name in the search box in the header above. Legal names are only unique in a single government registry so it is possible that you will see multiple matches for your name. Look at the location of the registry and the date of formation – if this is you, congratulations you have found your ALEI (or that of your trading partner if that was for what you were looking).
An Authoritative Legal Entity Identifier (ALEI) is issued by a government register when a company is formed; it is the registration or file number (or combination of letters and numbers) on the company’s registration certificate. It is recorded in the government register along with the legal name and date of formation.
