Data distribution

What is a Distribution Licence?

Customers who wish to distribute LME data outside of their organisation, or to display LME data on a public website/application, require a Distribution Licence.

Who is it for?

  • Data and information vendors
  • Website operators

How much does it cost?

Fees vary depending on whether distribution is real-time, 30 minutes or next day delayed data. The annual license fee for distributing real-time and 30 minutes delayed LME data is $16,000. Next day distribution is a one-off fee of $2,400
