markets in industrial minerals, 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 will publish the outcome of this
methodology review by December 13, including a summary of the
feedback, with the exception of those responses marked as
confidential. 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 for the industry.
