Completing the questionnaire

To answer these questionnaires, you must use the interactive online versions that are available at the links above.

To access the questionnaire, you will need the 10-character questionnaire token that was in the notification letter that was sent to your company or in the email that was sent specific to your company/facility. Please keep your individualized survey token(s) accessible. Your progress will be saved automatically, and you can leave the site and come back as many times as needed. If applicable, you can work on questionnaires for multiple facilities at a time; it is recommended you use an incognito window in your browser to avoid caching of individual tokens.

You can download PDF versions of the questionnaires at these links:

The PDF versions are for informational purposes only because the United States International Trade Commission (USITC or Commission) is able to receive responses only via online submission through the links above.


The Commission held two separate webinars—one for steel and one for aluminum late April. The webinars provided instructions on how to complete the questionnaire and offered an opportunity to ask questions directly to investigation staff. The FAQs document will be updated based on the questions received during the webinar. The slide decks for these webinars are below (recordings of these events are not available).

For steel producers: Slide deck for webinar held Tuesday, April 23, 2024 [PPTX, 49 slides]
For aluminum producers: Slide deck for webinar held Friday, April 26, 2024 [PPTX, 46 slides]

Background Information

The U.S. Trade Representative has requested that USITC generate estimates of the highest and average greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions intensities for steel and aluminum products produced in the United States, which the Trade Representative states will inform discussions regarding the proposed Global Arrangement on Sustainable Steel and Aluminum. The products covered in this request are the steel and aluminum products noted in attachment B of the Trade Representative’s request letter [PDF, 13 pages], a list that corresponds with the scope of imported goods listed in Presidential Proclamations 9704 and 9705 of March 8, 2018 (83 Fed. Reg. 11619 [PDF, 6 pages] and 83 Fed. Reg. 11625 [PDF, 6 pages], respectively, both issued March 15, 2018).

In her request, the Trade Representative has specified the Commission use a survey of firms with facilities producing these steel and aluminum products in the United States, as well as external public data sources, to develop these emissions intensity estimates. In response, the Commission has instituted this factfinding investigation and has issued these questionnaires to collect information directly from the facilities producing these covered products.

The Commission will deliver the results of its investigation to the Trade Representative by January 28, 2025.


The Commission has designated the information you provide in response to this questionnaire as “confidential business information,” unless such information is otherwise available to the public. The Commission may aggregate the information you provide with information from other questionnaire responses. The Commission will not publish information obtained from your questionnaire or an aggregation of your and other questionnaire responses in a manner that would identify your company/facility or reveal the operations of your company/facility. Section 332(g) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. § 1332(g)) provides that the Commission may not release information that it considers to be confidential business information unless the party submitting such information had notice, at the time of submission, that such information would be released by the Commission, or such party subsequently consents to the release of the information. Note that, although the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) treats GHG emissions data it collects under the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program (GHGRP) as public, the various input and production data that are not reported by the EPA but are collected by the Commission in this investigation will be treated as confidential business information consistent with the explanation above.
