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 licence fee for distributing real-time and/or 30 minutes delayed LME data is $18,000 and there are per user fees for most licence types.
Next day distribution incurs a one-off fee of $3,500.

How do I apply?

Please note that this review period may be extended where applicants have not provided all the information requested.
