COVERAGE NOTE: New fixed publishing times for NA pulp and paper assessments

OAKLAND, CA, July 26, 2019 (Fastmarkets RISI) – To improve our pricing service and give greater clarity and consistency to customers, Fastmarkets RISI is proposing to introduce fixed publishing times for North American pulp and paper price assessments.

These publishing times will be as follows:

  • North American Pulp (prelim and final) – 3 PM ET
  • Recovered Paper – 3 PM ET
  • Containerboard, boxboard, kraft papers and graphic papers – 430 PM ET

The proposed changes would take effect from September 2019.

For a full list of publishing dates in 2019, please see here. Dates for 2020 will be available shortly.

Please note that these publishing times refer to the time at which prices would be available to customers online in the Fastmarkets RISI Intelligence Center and mobile app. PPI Pulp & Paper Week Recovered Paper Price Watch would normally be available about 30 minutes after this time. PPI Pulp & Paper Week would appear as usual at the end of the working day.

In the case of delays, customers will be notified as per Fastmarkets RISI’s policy on corrections and delays to publication.

Customers wishing to receive an email notification when prices are updated can set up an email alert in IC dashboards. For details of how to do this, please contact your account manager or customer services.

For comments or queries please email by August 15th, 2019 at the latest, indicating “Fixed Publishing Times North America” in the subject line of the email.
