Welcome to the Department of Commerce On-Line Steel Licensing System

All steel mill imports into the United States require a license issued by the Steel Import Monitoring and Analysis (SIMA) office. This import licensing system website facilitates the monitoring of imports of steel mill products. By collecting, aggregating, and publishing data from import licenses, the SIMA system provides steel producers, consumers, importers, and the general public with accurate and timely information on current imports of certain steel products. Details of the SIMA system can be found in the final rule (19 CFR Part 360) published on January 5, 2017 (82 FR 1183), as an extension of previous authorization.

All imports of Steel Mill products need an entry-specific license to complete CBP entry summary (CF 7501).
