And a name change
‘MSL to Decide’ has become ‘QCS to Decide’ forward pricing.
This is simply a name change that reflects more accurately the fact that QCS makes the pricing decisions for this forward pricing option. The way this forward pricing option is managed remains as straightforward as it has always been.
