Note 1 : This norm is applicable for export product manufactured adopting Electric Arc Furnace/ Electric Induction Furnace using Non-alloy Steel Melting Scrap as the basic input with Sponge Iron/HBI and Pig iron as partial substitutes.

Note 2 : The total quantity of items allowed against Sl.No. 1(a) shall be limited to 1115 Kg. minus the quantity of ferro alloys/ metals/ compounds allowed against Sl.No.2. Further, individual quantity of Pig Iron and Sponge Iron/ HBI allowed against Sl. No. 1(a) shall not exceed 20% and 65% respectively of the total quantity of items to be permitted therein in line with Note 1 above.

Note 3: Quantities of Ferro Alloys/Metals/Compounds have been worked out based on a specified percentage of alloying element in the Ferro Alloys/Metals/Compounds as indicated therein within the parenthesis against each alloy. If the percentage of alloying element in the ferro-alloy is higher/ lower, the revised (i.e lower / higher) quantity may be worked out on pro-rata basis as under:

Quantity permitted in norm x % of element in ferroalloy/metal/compound as per the norm

Actual % of element in the imported ferroalloy/metal/compound

Note 4 : For a given alloying element in steel, wherever two alternate ferroalloy / metals /compound of the same alloying element have been permitted and it is proposed to import a combination of both, individual quantities of each ferro-alloy may be worked out based on the specified (part) quantities of the alloying element in two forms (but within the overall quantity of alloying element in the steel), using the content based formula given therein.

Note 5: Alloying element(s) in steel is/are prescribed by specifying the minimum value or a range or the maximum value. For calculating the quantities of ferro alloys/ metals/ compounds as per the content based formula given in the SION, the prescribed minimum or the mid value of the range or 0.8 times the maximum value of the respective alloying element(s) in the export product shall be taken into consideration.

Note 6: In case import of alloy steel melting scrap of known chemical composition is resorted to, quantity of respective ferroalloy/metal/compound to be allowed will reduce to account for the recoverable alloying element (s) (Nickel, Copper, Chromium, Molybdenum and Manganese) in the scrap. The reduced quantity of each ferroalloy/metal shall be obtained by deducting the equivalent quantity of ferroalloy/metal to be obtained using the following formula from the total quantity as per SION read with Note 3:

Alloy Steel Scrap Quantity (kg) x % of relevant element in scrap

1.115 x % of relevant element in ferroalloy / metal / compound

Ferro alloys/metals/compounds of elements other than that of Nickel, Copper, Chromium & Manganese shall be allowed as per the content base formula given therein without any reduction.

Note 7: The specified quantities of energy sources/ fuel for electric power generation(in K.Cal) against import item 4(a) & 4(c) which correspond to electric power consumption of 500 and 100 KWH per tonne of export product have been allowed assuming that Captive Power Plant (CPP)/Source of matching capacity exist. In case CPP in a given unit is of lower capacity, quantity of fuel to be allowed for import will be reduced on pro rata basis.

Note 8: Quantity of energy sources/ fuels (in K.Cal) correspond to a fuel having unit heat value of 8700 K.Cal/Kg. Import of any other fuel of higher/lower unit heat value (as long as it is relevant to the facilities installed in the unit) may be permitted, quantity of which (in Kgs./ Cubic Meters/ K. Liters) may be worked out by dividing the K.Cal figures given in the SION by the actual unit heat value of the imported fuel.

Note 9 : Import of items at Sl.No. 3(b), (c), (d), (i), CC Refractories under 3(n) (iii) and 4(c) shall not be permitted against export of steel ingots.

4 Relevant Fuel for electric power generation for Hot Rolling & Auxiliaries(for units with captive power plants/source only) 2,17,500 K. Cal
5 Relevant Shear Blades, Saw Blades 0.01 Kg.

Note 1: The quantity of energy sources/ fuel for electric power generation (i.e 2,17,500 K.Cal) which is based on a power consumption norm of approx. 100 KWH per tonne of export product has been allowed assuming that Captive Power Plant (CPP)/Source of at least this capacity exist. In case CPP/Source in a given unit is of lower capacity, quantity of fuel to be allowed for import will be reduced on pro rata basis.

Note 2: Quantity of fuel for re-heating furnace (in K.Cal.) corresponds to a fuel having unit heat value 8700 K.Cal/kg. for which, 30 Kg. of the said fuel may be allowed. Import of any other fuel of higher/lower unit heat value (as long as it is relevant to the re-heating furnace installed in the unit) may be permitted, quantity of which (in Kgs./ Cubic Meters/ K. Liters) may be worked out by dividing the K.Cal. figures in the SION by the actual unit heat value of the imported fuel.
