Coverage Note: Proposed changes to European sack kraft paper coverage

Following consultation with subscribers, Fastmarkets RISI has decided to reduce assessments for sack kraft in Europe to one price per quarter, ending the reporting of retroactive prices. This change will likely take place from July 2020.

The move is part of an ongoing effort to ensure our price assessments best fit the markets we cover. Fastmarkets RISI has analyzed price trends over the last five years and believes the current liquidity and volatility in the European sack kraft market does not warrant retroactive monthly pricing. We consulted with market participants on this change between June 13 and September 27, 2019.
