PRICING NOTICE: Clarification of Fastmarkets’ arsenic price assessment specification

During a review of its specifications, Fastmarkets has identified a necessary clarification to the specification for its arsenic price assessment.

Fastmarkets has updated the price description of its fortnightly price assessment for arsenic to Arsenic, 99% min As, in-whs Rotterdam, $ per lb, to match the quality listed in the detail specification list. It previously, and erroneously, was listed as Arsenic, 99.7% min As, in-whs Rotterdam, $ per lb, although the quality listed in the detailed specifications was correct.

Fastmarkets has also updated the frequency of publication to fortnightly, reflecting a change made in February 2016.
