COVERAGE NOTE: Proposed Changes to UK Newsprint Coverage
RISI proposes the following changes to UK newsprint price coverage with effect from January 2018, to better reflect current market dynamics.
1) Discontinue price assessments for 48.8 g newsprint as this grade is used less
2) Consider a move to outright assessments of 40 g newsprint, which is gaining in use.
In the meantime, RISI will continue to assess the 40 g newsprint market based on a full-yield formula, using the 42.5 g price as a starting point.
No changes are proposed to the assessment methodology for 45g and 42.5g newsprint.

Feedback on these proposed changes is requested by email at the following address firstname.lastname@example.org before October 23, 2017. RISI would also welcome feedback on its newsprint coverage in other European markets.
