COVERAGE NOTE: Changes to UK Newsprint Coverage - Final Decision

BRUSSELS, Dec. 7, 2017 ( PPI Europe ) – After conducting a market consultation process regarding its UK newsprint price coverage, Fastmarkets RISI will be implementing the following changes with effect from January 2018.

  1. Discontinue price assessments for 48.8-g newsprint as this grade is used less
    and less.
  2. Return to assessing 40 g newsprint based on a full-yield formula, using the 45-g price as a starting point.

No changes are proposed to the assessment methodology for 45-g and 42.5-g newsprint.

Fastmarkets RISI will continue to gather feedback on other graphic paper grades both in the UK and elsewhere in Europe to ensure its coverage best reflects current market dynamics.
