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.
