Takasbank is being globally endorsed by ROC as the pre-legal operating unit

Thursday, 21 November 2013

Dear Colleagues,
We would like to inform yourselves that Takasbank was globally endorsed by Regulatory Oversight Committee (ROC) so that the pre-Legal Entity Identifier (p-LEI) codes Takasbank issued may be used for reporting and other regulatory purposes in the various jurisdictions represented in the ROC. As a result, Takasbank became one of the five pre-local operating units endorsed by ROC for assigning globally used p-LEIs.
By the beginning of 2013, ROC allocated a four character prefix “7890” to Takasbank as a pre-Legal Operating Unit (p-LOU) and subsequently all preparations were finalized as of July 31, 2013 and legal entities who would like to apply for a p-LEI code can send their applications to lei@takasbank.com.tr address beginning from September 2013. With ROC endorsement, Takasbank has the opportunity to verify its compliance with international standards and thus all national and international legal entities can confidently apply for a p-LEI code.

The LEI application forms as well as details can be found on our website (www.takasbank.com.tr). Also, with regard to p-LEI code allocation; we are making the necessary arrangements to introduce a web portal (http://www.leiturkey.com) as of the year-end to assign p-LEI codes on-line.
