COVERAGE NOTE: Changes to South Korea Paper and Board assessments – Implementation

As previously announced, RISI has discontinued assessments of the following two grades with effect from this month.

  • Uncoated woodfree paper 60g (Price ID 200)
  • Uncoated grayback duplex board 80g (Price ID 211)

This follows a market consultation in the fourth quarter of 2018 and is intended to reflect better current market trade. These two grades have not been produced in South Korea for more than a year. With prices unavailable, RISI is unable to maintain reasonable assessments of the grades. No objections to the proposal were received during the market consultation.
