Introduction

Baltic LEI OÜ is registered in Estonia and operates as an LEI Registration Agent in the Northern and Eastern Europe. We operate in United Kingdom under the trademark BritishLEI.

1. The procedure for applying for an LEI number

1.1. If a client of Baltic LEI OÜ (BLEI) would like to order an LEI for his/her company or to renew an existing LEI, the client needs to fill in the application on the BritishLEI website www.britishlei.co.uk.

1.2. By submitting the application, client is obligated to agree with the terms and conditions stated in this document and also privacy policy of BLEI.

1.3. After submitting the application, BLEI will send the client an email containing the application and a Power of Attorney for signing.

1.4. The client needs to sign the Power of Attorney using e-signature or by printing it, manually signing it and returning it to us via email: info@britishlei.co.uk. The effect of signing the Power of Attorney is that the client authorises BLEI to order an LEI and/or renew the company LEI. The client also confirms that he/she is authorised to give third party authorisation to BLEI to order or renew LEI for his company by signing the Power of Attorney.

1.5. After BLEI has received the signed Power of Attorney and payment for the service, BLEI will start to process the client’s application to receive or renew an LEI.

1.6. If there are any inconsistencies in the data provided by the client, or if some information is missing, BLEI may contact the client by email or by phone.

1.7. After successful allocation of an LEI, BLEI will send the LEI to the client’s email. The client can check the validity of his LEI from the global GLEIF webpage.

1.8. If a client orders a multi-year contract for their LEI (eg. a 3-year LEI), the LEI will be initially issued for 1 year and BLEI will automatically renew this LEI for the 2 following years. When the multi-year product is due to expire, BLEI will inform the legal entity by email.

1.9. If the client has submitted an application for an LEI, or ordered an LEI renewal, and the client has signed the Power of Attorney, then the decision is considered to be final and it is not possible for the client to revoke the application. In addition, if a client orders a multi-year renewal for their LEI (eg. a 5-year LEI) and discovers after 3 years that he does not need an active LEI anymore or would like to transfer their LEI to another LEI service provider, then transfer is possible, but the multi-year contract will be automatically cancelled and client is not eligible for any refund.

1.10. BLEI reserves the right to decline a client’s LEI application and, in this case, the client will not be charged.
