The LME delivery system relies on a user being guaranteed a specified quality and quantity of metal.

To ensure a consistency in quality, all metal delivered into LME-approved storage facilities must be an LME-approved brand and conform to specifications on quality, shape and weight. Producers looking to register their production for LME delivery must meet certain criteria for each brand before gaining LME approval.
