Steel Import License Application Under Review
The International Trade Administration is accepting comments through Nov. 6 on the steel import license application, form ITA-4141P.
To effectively monitor and assess trends in steel imports, the ITA must collect and provide timely aggregated summaries about such imports. The steel import license is the tool used to collect the necessary information. The ITA notes that the Census Bureau collects import data and disseminates aggregate information about steel imports but that the time required to collect, process, and disseminate this information can take up to 90 days after importation, giving interested parties and the public far less time to respond to injurious sales.
