I. Abstract



    The President's Proclamation on Steel Safeguards mandated that the

collect and provide timely aggregated summaries about the imports. The 

Steel Import License is the tool used to collect the necessary 

information. The Census Bureau currently collects import data and 

disseminates aggregate information about steel imports. However, the 

time required to collect, process, and disseminate this information 

through Census can take up to 90 days after importation of the product, 

giving interested parties and the public far less time to respond to 

injurious sales.
