This consultation, which is open until December 10, 2021, seeks to ensure that our methodology continues to reflect the 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.

Please send responses in writing, preferably in electronic format, to the following address: Please add the subject heading 'FAO: Davide Ghilotti, re: industrial minerals methodology.’ Please specify whether your response is confidential. Opinions offered in confidential responses may be referenced but will not be attributed in any way.

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.
