PRICING NOTICE: Extension of consultation to launch daily containerized steel scrap cfr Vietnam assessment

Fastmarkets is extending until August 31 the consultation period for its proposal to launch a daily containerized steel scrap cfr Vietnam assessment.

The proposed specification is as follows:

Assessment: Steel scrap HMS 1&2 (80:20) containerized import, cfr main port Vietnam, $/tonne
Quality: Heavy melting scrap (HMS) 1&2 (80:20) mix
Quantity: Containerized
Location: cfr southern Vietnam
Timing: Up to three months
Unit: US$ per tonne
Payment terms: Letter of credit
Publication: Daily, 5-6pm Singapore time

To provide feedback on this proposal or if you would like to provide price information by becoming a data submitter to this price, please contact Paul Lim by email at pricing@fastmarkets.com. Please add the subject heading ‘FAO: Paul Lim, re: daily containerized ferrous scrap cfr Vietnam’.
