HELSINKI, January 18, 2024 (PIX Bioenergy and Wood Indices) - Fastmarkets FOEX is inviting feedback from the industry on the pricing methodologies for its PIX Sawn Softwood Timber FAS Finland price indices, as part of its annual methodology review process.

The open consultation, which is open until February 15, 2024, 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.

Fastmarkets FOEX does not propose any changes to the current PIX Sawn Timber Finland methodology and specifications which are available here.

Please send responses in writing, preferably in electronic format, to the following address: pricing.foex@fastmarkets.com. Please add the subject heading "PIX Sawn Timber Finland annual methodology review 2024”.

We treat feedback as confidential. We share responses with the industry at the end of the consultation without attributing them in any way so as to protect the identity of respondents. Please specify whether your response is anonymous, in which case we will not share it in any form.

Fastmarkets will publish the outcome of this methodology review by February 29, 2024, on the Fastmarkets FOEX website under Pricing Notices, including a summary of the feedback with the exception of those marked as anonymous. Any proposals to make material changes, discontinue or launch prices will involve a separate market consultation, the length of which will depend on how substantial the change is.
