COVERAGE NOTE: Proposed Changes to UK newsprint coverage - Consultation
BRUSSELS, April 19, 2019 (Fastmarkets RISI) – To better reflect current trading in the UK newsprint market, Fastmarkets RISI proposes to make the following changes to its assessment:
Currently Fastmarkets RISI bases its assessments for 40-g newsprint on a full-yield formula, using the 45-g price as the basis: Pa = Pb/a*b.
Going forward, Fastmarkets RISI proposes to start assessing 40-g newsprint based on a half-yield formula, using the 42.5-g price as a starting point. The half-yield formula consists of adding 3.125% to the basis price.
These changes would likely take place from July 2019.
Please send feedback on this proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 18, 2019, mentioning “UK Newsprint” in the subject line of the email.
