This consultation, which is open until March 8, 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).

PRICING NOTICE: Proposal to Expand PIX European Recovered Paper Prices and Discontinue PPI Europe Paper for Recycling Prices

HELSINKI/BRUSSELS, January 26, 2024 (PIX Pulp & Paper/PPI Europe) - This consultation, which is open until March 1, 2024, seeks to ensure that our proposal is handled 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 welcomes your feedback on the following possible action: Expanding PIX European Recovered Paper coverage and discontinuing PPI Europe Paper for Recycling Assessments. Fastmarkets has received feedback from the market that providing similar prices for the same grades of Paper for Recycling in PPI Europe and PIX has been the source of some confusion. Fastmarkets understands that market preference leans towards PIX Recovered Paper prices. To this effect, Fastmarkets proposes expanding PIX to include higher grades and discontinuing PPI Europe prices. This consultation is opened until March 1, 2024, and subject to feedback from and engagement with the industry, we intend to implement the change starting from April 2024.

Specifically, this would entail adding PIX pan-European monthly price coverage for the following grades:

CEN 2.06 Coloured letters

  • Quality:       CEN 2.06 Coloured letters
  • Quantity:     Minimum 20 metric tons
  • Location:     Europe
  • Timing:       Orders for delivery during the current month or following month at the latest
  • Unit:           Euros per metric ton
  • Incoterm:    Delivered at buyer’s mill or warehouse.
  • Payment terms:30 days or other term of payment which is used in the majority of sales/purchases.
  • Publication: Monthly on second Tuesday of each month at 11am CET

CEN 3.10 Multi printing

  • Quality:       CEN 3.10 Multi printing
  • Quantity:     Minimum 20 metric tons
  • Location:     Europe
  • Timing:       Orders for delivery during the current month or following month at the latest
  • Unit:           Euros per metric ton
  • Incoterm:    Delivered at buyer’s mill or warehouse.
  • Payment terms:30 days or other term of payment which is used in the majority of sales/purchases.
  • Publication:  Monthly on second Tuesday of each month at 11am CET

All Paper for Recycling assessments currently featured in Fastmarkets’ PPI Europe publication will be discontinued and replaced therein with the full suite of expanded PIX Recovered Paper Prices including PIX OCC 1.04 dd, PIX ONP/OMG 1.11 dd, PIX RCP Mixed 1.02 GER and the above two new grades.

Please send responses in writing, preferably in electronic format, to the following address: pricing.foex@fastmarkets.com. Please add the subject heading "PIX European Recovered Paper and PPI Europe Paper for Recycling Coverage”.

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 March 8, 2024, on the Fastmarkets FOEX website under Pricing Notices, including a summary of the feedback with the exception of those marked as anonymous.

PRICING NOTICE: Proposal to discontinue the PIX NBSK Pulp US index in NORTH AMERICA – Final Decision

HELSINKI, December 28, 2023 (PIX Pulp & Paper Indices) - Fastmarkets FOEX invited feedback from the industry in an open consultation process between November 2 and December 14, 2023, on the proposal to discontinue the PIX US NBSK Gross price index in NORTH AMERICA on May 31, 2024.

Fastmarkets FOEX would like to thank those who took the time to respond to the consultation. The feedback received included comments both for and against the proposal. Those ones against were mostly general, but no respondent said that the index is actively commercially used by them.

Considering the responses, Fastmarkets FOEX has arrived at a Final Decision of discontinuing the PIX US NBSK Gross price index by May 31, 2024.

Fastmarkets continues to publish the price of this grade through its benchmark Northern Bleached Softwood Kraft assessment published on RISI and PPI Pulp & Paper Week.

Dec 27, 2023

PRICING NOTICE: Discontinuing the PIX Pellet Nordic index – Final Decision

HELSINKI, December 27, 2023 (PIX Bioenergy & Wood indices) - As previously proposed and following a consultation, Fastmarkets FOEX has decided to discontinue the PIX Pellet Nordic index. Fastmarkets FOEX will publish the last index on May 21, 2024.

Fastmarkets FOEX carried out a market consultation regarding this change from November 9, 2023, to December 21, 2023. We received feedback supporting the proposed discontinuation but also some against it. The ones against were mostly generally dissatisfied with the proposal but no respondent said that the index is actively commercially used by the industry at present. One respondent suggested that there could be possibilities for index modification instead of discontinuation. However, the proposed changes would be more feasible in a totally new index, instead of through methodology and specification modification. Fastmarkets FOEX would like to thank all respondents for their feedback.

For comments or queries, please email hello.foex@fastmarkets.com indicating “PIX Pellet Nordic” in the subject line of the email.

PRICING NOTICE: Fastmarkets FOEX launches PIX Packaging price indices in the Middle East – Notice of Implementation

HELSINKI, June 6, 2023 (PIX Pulp & Paper Indices) - Fastmarkets today launches PIX Packaging GCC price indices.

After a consultation period that began on April 6 and ended on May 18, Fastmarkets has launched PIX Packaging GCC price indices, covering the main containerboard grades testliner and fluting, produced in and delivered to the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries. The GCC countries include Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.

The two Packaging GCC indices are:

PIX Containerboard Testliner Delivered GCC USD/tonne (PIX Testliner GCC)

PIX Containerboard Fluting Delivered GCC USD/tonne (PIX Fluting GCC)

The PIX indices are based on actual transaction data from both buyers and sellers of containerboard. Weighting between price providers is achieved by assigning more price points to larger buyers/sellers than to smaller ones. PIX is a price average of all prices reported in the GCC region. Before calculating the arithmetical average, we remove the highest and lowest 10% of the number of price points.

A full methodology with detailed specifications can be found here.

If you would like to provide price information by becoming a data submitter, please contact Eva Nyman by email at: pricing.foex@fastmarkets.com. Please add the subject heading ‘PIX Packaging GCC’.

PRICING NOTICE: Fastmarkets FOEX decides to launch new PIX Containerboard price indices in the Gulf area – Final Decision

HELSINKI, May 31, 2023 (PIX Pulp & Paper Indices) - Following a consultation period, Fastmarkets has made a decision on its proposal to launch PIX containerboard price indices, covering the main grades testliner and fluting, in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries on June 6.

The containerboard market in the Gulf area is growing and there is currently no published price coverage there. We have observed an interest in market information, sufficient to warrant an independent price index series. Fastmarkets has successfully carried out a pilot program for testing the validity of local monthly testliner and fluting price indices in the GCC countries since September. The GCC countries include Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.

The consultation on this proposal began on April 6 and ended on May 18. The majority of feedback received during the consultation period has been supportive of a launch.

The specifications for PIX Testliner GCC and PIX Fluting GCC are as follows:

Description: PIX Containerboard Testliner Delivered GCC USD/tonne
Description: PIX Containerboard Fluting Delivered GCC USD/tonne
Basis weight: 125 g/m²+
Unit: Metric ton
Quantity: Minimum 25 metric tons of prime quality in reels
Typical furnish: Recovered paper, primarily old corrugated containers (OCC)
Location: Produced in and delivered to: Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries: Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates. Imports from outside of the GCC countries are excluded.
Incoterm: Delivered to a buyer’s corrugated box/converting plant or warehouse. Most commonly DAP (delivered at place), i.e., the seller handles export and transit country formalities, while the buyer is responsible for import formalities.
Timing: Final price agreed for trades intended for delivery during the data month.
Currency: USD
Payment terms: Net payment terms.
Duties: Customs and other duties paid. Excluding VAT.
Price type: Net price.
Publication: Monthly. At noon Helsinki time (EET/EEST) on the first Tuesday of the following month. (E.g.: The March index is published on the first Tuesday of April.) If Tuesday falls on a public holiday in Finland, the index will be published on the first working day thereafter. Major holidays in the GCC region may impact the publishing schedule. Please see the PIX publishing calendar at foex.fi.

The indices are based on actual transaction data from both buyers and sellers of containerboard. Weighting between price providers is achieved by assigning more price points to larger buyers/sellers than to smaller ones. PIX is a price average of all prices reported in the GCC region. Before calculating the arithmetical average, we remove the highest and lowest 10% of the number of price points.
