Scope and field of application
This international Standard defines and classifies steel products according to
a) their stage of manufacture;
b) their shape and dimensions1);
c) their appearance.
Although the products are generally classified independently of their end uses or manufacturing processes, it has sometimes been necessary to make reference to these criteria
Section one defines and classifies steel industry products2).
Section two defines and classifies other steel products as follows :
a) powder metallurgy products;
c) forged finished and stamped finished products;
d) bright products;
e) cold-formed products;
f) welded sections;
h) tubes, hollow sections and hollow bars.
1) All dimensions given in this International Standard are nominal.
2) The term "steel industry products", in the strict sense of the expression, is not yet currently applied in all countries. Its introduction should bring about harmonization, particularly in the field of statistics, without changing anything in existing practices.
