- SIMS will provide advance information about steel imports to various stakeholders including producers and importers
- Importers of specified steel products will register in advance on the web portal of SIMS providing the necessary information.
- The information about the steel imports provided by importers on the SIMS will be monitored by the Steel Ministry.
