COVERAGE NOTE – Discontinuation of assessment for China Uncoated Woodfree Reels (mixed wood/nonwood pulp) – Final Decision

Following market consultations, Fastmarkets RISI will discontinue the monthly price assessment for China Uncoated Woodfree Reels (mixed wood/nonwood pulp) in PPI Asia, with effect from March 2021.

The discontinuation is due to a substantial decrease in the availability of the grade in China. The last assessment was published on February 26, 2021. Fastmarkets RISI consulted on this change in February 2021. No negative feedback on the change was received.
