SIMA Recategorization of Carbon and Alloy Slab HTS Code

IMAU regularly works with the steel industry to ensure that SIMA provides the most accurate and quality data for the industry to track trade patterns. For an even better user experience, IMAU has made an update to the SIMA steel mill products Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) concordance list at the request of the steel industry. The HTS 7224.90.00.55 has now been reclassified from the Semi- Finished (Not Slab) product group to the Carbon and Alloy Slab product group as it meets the dimensional requirements for slab. The SIMA monitor also reflects these changes.
