ITA Intros New Steel Import License Collection System

Written by Brett Linton

The U.S. International Trade Administration has launched a new Steel Import Monitoring and Analysis (SIMA) System as of Oct, 13. This new system collects and publishes data on steel mill product imports and provides valuable information on steel trade within the United States.

The import monitor provides an early indication on steel imports by publishing near real-time aggregate data on products shipped to the United States. This data includes information collected from steel license applications and publicly released Census statistics. The data is displayed in tables and graphs for users to analyze various levels and changes in steel trade involving the United States. Additionally, SIMA provides data on U.S. steel mill exports, as well as imports and exports of select downstream steel products.

The International Trade Administration has published an instructional video covering the updated SIMA public monitor. It walks through how to navigate the new system, new functionality and features, and how to use the monitor. Click here to view the video:
