Système Intégré de Gestion de Licenses
The Directorate General for Trade's integrated system for the management of prior surveillance documents and licences for imports of steel, aluminium and wood to the EU
Welcome to the SIGL website which provides information on prior surveillance statistics and quota levels for imports of steel, aluminium and wood products applied in the European Union.
Important
The information on this website is provided to allow all interested persons to see the results of the Commission's management of the prior surveillance measures and quotas at any given point in time. In terms of quotas, the information may be subject to rapid changes for a variety of reasons (e.g. deductions from working levels as a result of the exercise of flexibility provisions by exporting countries, etc.). The information provided cannot be taken as guaranteeing the availability of quota and is not supplied for commercial reasons. The Commission cannot be held liable for the consequences of any reliance on the information provided or for any inaccuracies in such information.
Regulations introducing the prior surveillance regime on certain steel and aluminium products expired on 15 May 2020. As a result import licenses are no longer necessary for imports of steel and aluminium as from 16 May. As from this date, the prior surveillance regime is replaced by a monitoring system, based on data collected by the Commission. More information can be found at: Steel and Aluminium monitoring
