ICIS is implementing a process of rolling consultation on all of its methodologies. This consultation paper is part of this formal process and covers all of the ICIS primary price points included in the styrene acrylonitrile (SAN) weekly publications.

The consultation asked both general questions about the suitability of the ICIS methodology and questions addressing specific SAN market issues.

ICIS Decision

There was one formal confidential response to consultation GMC 20/14.

The confidential response confirmed that the methodology being used to cover the SAN markets was appropriate for the task.

ICIS will not be proposing any immediate changes to the methodology of the SAN Report. Any decision to change this methodology will be communicated to subscribers using the usual channels and with the usual notice period.

ICIS continues to welcome any feedback on its SAN methodology outside of the formal consultation process.

To provide further comments or feedback please contact Barbara Ortner, Head of Market Reporting:
