The following weekly assessments will be discontinued effective May 10 2012:

Rotterdam Export HMS 1&2 (80:20)
Indian Import Shredded?
Turkish Import HMS 1&2 (80:20)

Metal Bulletin’s Ferrous Scrap fob Rotterdam HMS 1&2 (80:20) and Ferrous Scrap cfr Indian Shredded indices will continue to be published each Friday and the Ferrous Scrap cfr Turkey HMS 1&2 (80:20) on a daily basis.

Metal Bulletin will continue to publish weekly assessments for Rotterdam Export HMS 1&2 (70:30), Rotterdam Export Shredded, Indian Import HMS 1&2 (80:20), Turkish Import HMS 1&2 (70:30) and Turkish Import Shredded on a weekly basis, but will move the publication date from Thursday to Friday together with the assessments for UK HMS 1&2 (80:20) and UK Shredded. This change will become effective May 11 2012. For queries and comments, please contact Vera Blei, steel editor, at
