In the past, statistics on steel production were collected under the Treaty establishing the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC). When the Treaty expired at the end of 2002, Prodcom was used to collect the steel statistics.
In order to provide continuity, headings corresponding to the ECSC headings were introduced in parallel with the existing Prodcom headings for steel.
