CRU prices are based on regular contact with a wide network of market participants. This network is constantly reviewed and expanded to ensure a balance of buyers and sellers, and reflect actual activity in the market.
All price assessments are carried out by experienced analysts who have a rich understanding of the markets that they are covering. We treat dialogue with market participants as confidential and no details are shared with third parties. We also regularly carry out consultations with the market about its methodology to ensure that it accurately reflects the underlying commodity market and latest regulations.
Our policies, processes and methodologies have been designed to follow IOSCO Principles (International Organization of Securities Commissions). For our published Chinese Prices, our policies and processes adhere to the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) rules.
