COVERAGE NOTE: South Korea UFP, duplex board changes, Consultation

To better reflect current market conditions, RISI is considering the following changes to its South Korean coverage:

- Discontinue assessments of 60 g uncoated woodfree paper

- Discontinue assessments of 80 g uncoated grayback duplex board

These two grades have not been produced in South Korea for more than one year. With prices unavailable, RISI is unable to maintain reasonable assessments of the value of the grades.

RISI will undergo a consultation on this proposal, with the potential that the changes would take effect from the fourth quarter report, due to be published in December.

For comments and queries, please email by October 31.
