The entire world around us is filled with a certain numerical regularity; this can relate to the height of mountains, winning lottery numbers, numbers in tax declarations, the number of stars – this phenomenon is called Benford's Law. Benford's Law claims that the first significant (valid) place in naturally occurring numbers is more often occupied by low digits than high digits. So far, this topic has been paid little attention in Czech literature. In this paper, we decided to check whether the law also applies in the field of metallurgy. Incidence of digits in the first significant place was assessed using the set of statistical data of selected companies whose business is the production of basic metals, metallurgical metal processing and foundry activities.Keywords: Benford's Law, metallurgical enterprise, digits in the first significant place
