ICIS is implementing a process of rolling consultation on all of its pricing methodologies. This consultation paper is part of this formal process and covers all of the ICIS primary price points included in the titanium dioxide weekly publications.

The consultation asks both general questions about the suitability of the ICIS pricing methodology and questions addressing specific titanium dioxide market issues.

There was one formal but anonymised response to the consultation, noting that the ICIS price assessments are accurate.

There were no changes proposed in the response to consultation GMC 16/18. ICIS will not be proposing any immediate changes to the methodology of the titanium dioxide 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 methodology outside of the formal consultation process.
