However stainless steel and steel are not part of the European REACH directive (1907-2006-EC) there seem to be some examples of CAS numbers for stainless steel, however this looks more like a individual initiative from the supplier / producer.

Example: CAS 7439-89-6 ThyssenKrupp Stainless

Steel is not a chemical substansion as meant by REACH, but a product with several chemical elements. These elements do have a CAS number.
