Permanent Identifier (PermID) is a reference data spine offered by LSEG/Refinitiv to help create unique identifiers for organizations that are publicly listed.
Refinitiv is making available its Permanent Identifiers, or PermIDs, and the associated entity masters and metadata to the market. PermIDs are open, permanent and universal identifiers where underlying attributes capture the context of the identity they each represent.
This dataset contains entities from a larger database that is used to enrich the data in OpenSanctions with additional details and connections. We only include entities from the source where there is a relevant connection to the entities in the main OpenSanctions database (e.g. to a sanctions target or a politician).
