PRICING NOTICE: Proposal to launch Northern EU domestic stainless grade 304 cold-rolled sheet transaction price

Metal Bulletin proposes to launch a weekly domestic transaction price assessment for 2mm grade 304 cold rolled stainless sheet delivered in Northern Europe.

The consultation period for this proposed launch will end one month from the publication date of this pricing notice, subject to market feedback, on Thursday August 2.
