LME fees are set annually by the Exchange and agreed by its Board. All fees are standard across membership category or service and apply only to LME members and users of LME systems. Fees charged by LME members to clients are subject to normal commercial negotiation.

These fees are effective until 31 December 2014. LME has announced a new fee schedule that comes into effect on 1 January 2015.

Brand listing charges

Applications to list material as an LME-approved brand are subject to a one off £40,000 application fee per brand of metal. The Exchange does not currently levy an initial listing charge for steel billet brands.

Applications are subject to the relevant guidance notes. Fees are not refundable for unsuccessful or lapsed applications.

A complete listing of fees and levies is available. Fees and levies may be subject to VAT and other applicable taxes. For more information please contact us to discuss your enquiry.
