As part of its commitment to an open and transparent pricing methodology, S&P Global Platts would like to invite feedback on any of its sugar assessments globally.
Platts reviews all methodologies annually to ensure they continue to reflect the physical markets being assessed. 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 and specification guides are preceded by extensive bilateral discussions with market stakeholders and often, open public forums. Routine changes, such as seasonal quality, time-rolling assessments or clarifications, generally do not materially alter an assessment.
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.
