IMPORT LICENSE NUMBERS REQUIRED ON CERTAIN U.S. IMPORT STEEL ENTRIES
U.S. Customs and Border Protection now requires that entry summaries and foreign-trade zone admission documents for certain steel imports include import license numbers.
These license numbers are required as part of the Commerce Department’s steel licensing and import monitoring program.
After the International Trade Commission determined that foreign steel dumped on the U.S. market could cause substantial injury to domestic production, President Bush imposed a tariff-rate quota on specified steel slabs and an increase in duties on other specified steel products on March 5, 2002.
