As part of its commitment to open and transparent pricing and product specifications, S&P Global Platts would like to invite feedback on its Japan domestic oil products methodology.
Platts reviews all methodologies annually to ensure they continue to reflect the physical markets under assessment.
Platts regularly assesses the relevance of methodologies through continuous contact with the market.
Feedback on methodologies is always welcomed by Platts.
Platts is committed to providing advance notice in a clear time frame that gives users sufficient opportunity to analyze and comment on the impact of such proposed changes.
Time frames vary depending on Platts analysis of the overall circumstances of a particular change.
Methodology changes that materially alter an assessment and require an update to the methodology specification are preceded by extensive bilateral discussions with market stakeholders and open public forums.
Routine changes or clarifications generally do not materially alter an assessment.
Platts holds open public forums in which material methodology changes and feedback are presented, and at which further feedback may be given.
For written comments, please provide a clear indication if comments are not intended for publication by Platts for public viewing.
Platts will consider all comments received and will make comments not marked as confidential available upon request.
