The Jacobsen Achieves IOSCO Assurance for Agricultural Benchmarking

Boulder, CO (July 27, 2020) – International price reporting agency The Jacobsen Publishing Company has successfully completed an external assurance review and has received a Letter of Reasonable Assurance from the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO). The compliance letter is for its low carbon intensity feedstock commodity benchmarks.

The Jacobsen is a global industry leader in providing price reporting and price forecasting in the areas of fats, renewable energy, vegetable oils, organic, hemp and hides. Since 1865, the company has been utilized as the benchmark for a diverse range of commodities.

“We serve at the intersection of the agriculture and energy markets,” said John Donicht, President of The Jacobsen. “We are honored to receive the IOSCO Letter of Reasonable Assurance. “IOSCO is the gold standard for price reporting agencies and this one of the many reasons customers trust in our reporting,” stated Donicht.

As part of the IOSCO credentialing process, independent legal services company Catalyst Law Group examined The Jacobsen’s policies and processes for assessing prices for the Used Cooking Oil, Tallow and Distiller Corn Oil markets. The review measured compliance with the globally recognized principles for price reporting agencies (PRAs) set out by the IOSCO. The IOSCO PRA Principles were endorsed by the G20 in November 2012. They include governance, control, quality, integrity and conflict management in relation to commodity benchmark price assessments and require an annual external audit. The IOSCO compliance helps evolve the market and instill confidence in price reporting.
