The LME Rulebook sets out the rules and regulations of the London Metal Exchange. It is separated into 13 parts and each part focuses on a specific area. 

Rulebook changes

The LME is currently consulting on changes to the LME Rulebook, the Matching Rules and the LME Warehouse Enforcement and Disciplinary Procedures (Notice 19/311). The changes relate primarily to the LME’s implementation of the European Benchmark Regulation (the “BMR”), as well as to a number of miscellaneous amendments. The consultation will remain open for responses until 6:00pm (London time) on 1 November 2019.
