COVERAGE NOTE: Changes to US SOP, SWL Assessments for Export to China and to Asia – Consultation
OAKLAND, CA, May 8, 2018 (PPI Pulp & Paper Week)–Fastmarkets RISI is considering the following changes to its US recovered paper coverage:
PPI Pulp & Paper Week:
- Discontinue assessments of US Sorted Office Paper CFR delivered to China and US Sorted (Post-Consumer) White Ledger CFR Asia (price IDs 1044 and 1031, and 1045 and 1032, respectively).
The proposed change is necessary to streamline Fastmarkets RISI’s coverage of recovered paper in PPI Pulp & Paper Week and sister publication PPI Asia. US PPI Pulp & Paper Week/OBM will continue to report pricing on an FAS basis at main US ports for both Sorted Office Paper exported to China and for the Sorted (Post-Consumer) White Ledger exported to Asia. PPI Asia will continue to report prices for Sorted Office Paper CIF China.
Fastmarkets RISI will undergo a consultation on this proposal, with the potential that the changes would take effect starting October 2018.
