Minor Metals Trade Association
The Minor Metals Trade Association (MMTA) is a not-for-profit organisation, which serves to benefit and promote the interests of its international Membership, comprising companies actively involved in all aspects of the international minor metals sector.
The MMTA is the world’s largest association involved with minor metals. From just 19 founding Members, the MMTA is now comprised of companies from across the globe, engaged in all aspects of minor metals activity, the Association having long since broadened from its original Member base of trading companies.
Being a member of the MMTA means that you are part of a group of like-minded consumers, producers, traders and service companies, who all share an interest in the minor metals industry in all its forms. The MMTA works together with and on behalf of its diverse Membership, to inform on such issues as legislative and regulatory changes, as well as conveying the concerns and suggestions of the Membership to those responsible for setting policy. We are able to do this through our involvement in many groups and networks across different areas – Critical Raw Materials policy, Chemicals Regulation, Conflict Minerals legislation, strategies for industrial development and security of supply.
The MMTA also organises a diverse range of events, the flagship event being the MMTA’s International Minor Metals Conference, which combines quality presentations with unrivalled networking opportunities. Our Anniversary Dinner, held during London Metals Week, regularly attracts key industry figures, and is complemented by our programme of both social and educational events, often combining good food and good company, with topics of interest to those with an interest in the sector.
