important notice
With the Note of 8 May 2020, the European Commission has informed the Member States that, from 15 May p.v., it will cease the preventive EU supervision regime - introduced in 2016 (with Execution Regulation 2016/670, and subsequent mm. and ii.) - on imports of certain steel and aluminium products originating from some third countries.

From the date indicated, the SIVA will cease to be operational.

At the same time, the Commission has anticipated that this scheme will be replaced at the same time by a new system of statistical monitoring of imports in matters, faster and more effective than the previous one and less burdensome for companies.
