Important Changes from October 2013
The Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 received Royal Assent on 28th February 2013, and will replace the previous registration requirements for scrap metal dealers and motor salvage operators from 1st October 2013. After that date, applications may be made for site licences and mobile collector's licences under the new legislation.
