Steel Import Monitoring and Analysis System
Document Number: 2012-27539
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2012-11-13
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
The Department of Commerce publishes this proposed rule to request public comments on proposed modifications to the regulations for the Steel Import Monitoring and Analysis (SIMA) System that would extend the system until March 2017. This extension would continue the Department's ability to track as early as possible certain steel mill imports into the United States and make the import data publicly available approximately seven weeks in advance of the full public trade data release by the Bureau of the Census. Having access to full information about imports provides the public with greater knowledge to evaluate current market conditions.
