These are products based on iron and steel.
There is no legal definition of steel products, but a European regulation presents a list of products subject to monitoring by the European Union (EU). These are essentially products indicated in chapters 72 and 73 of the Combined Nomenclature (TARIC code).
Obligations and controls
All imports of iron and steel products shown in Appendix I of the European regulation are subject to prior monitoring by the EU prior to their release for free circulation when the net weight per product imported and per individual TARIC code exceeds 2,500 kg.
Importers must apply for monitoring for each TARIC code. A single surveillance document may cover several shipments, when the quantities shown on the surveillance document are not completely used by a shipment.
Note: Products originating from Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein are exempt from presenting this document.
Importing steel products requires a surveillance document that may be applied for at the Control office for exports, imports and transit of the Ministry of the Economy.
The following procedure relating to steel products is described on the Guichet.lu website:
In Luxembourg, the Control office for exports, imports and transit of the Ministry of the Economy is responsible for monitoring and delivering authorizations concerning certain steel products.
