This consultation, which is open until June 8, 2023, seeks to ensure that our methodologies continue to reflect the physical market under indexation, in compliance with the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) principles for Price Reporting Agencies (PRAs). This includes all elements of our pricing process, our price specifications and publication frequency.

Please find the current methodology for the FOEX PIX Forest Biomass Finland price indices here.

Fastmarkets FOEX proposes to clarify the methodology document regarding forest biomass imports. Imported prices and volumes can be included in the index but this has not been specified in the current methodology document.
