COVERAGE NOTE: Changes to US SOP, SWL Assessments for Export – Notice of Implementation
BEDFORD, MA, Oct. 5, 2018 (PPI Global) – Following market consultation, and as previously announced, Fastmarkets RISI has made the following changes to its US recovered paper coverage with effect from October 2018.
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.
