Application for Scrap Metal Dealer Registration
No person may carry on the business of a scrap metal (recycling of old or damaged metals) dealer unless they are registered to do so by their local authority under the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 1964. Registration as a scrap metal dealer is free and lasts for 3 years. It must be renewed before the expiry date if the registered person wishes to carry on as a scrap metal dealer. In addition to registration, the dealer must keep at each registered scrap metal store, a book detailing all scrap metal received at that place and all scrap metal either processed at or dispatched from that place.
