The Ministry of Defence (MOD) does not hold a central record of the origin of all steel used in infrastructure projects. Steel for our major Defence Infrastructure Organisation programmes is mainly sourced by our prime contractors and the supply chains are complex.

The MOD does collate some information about the origin of steel for major Defence projects with the largest steel requirements. This information can be found within the 'compliance with the steel procurement guidance' document at the following link:
