The UK Government passed the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 with the intention of regulating scrap metal dealers, collectors and motor salvage operators. The Act replaced all of the existing legislation for motor salvage operators and scrap metal dealers.

The Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 came into force on 1 October 2013. Under the new Act there are two types of licence:

  • A Site Licence (381kb) – this will be required where a business is carried on as a scrap metal dealer at a premises. A site manager will be required to be named for each site. The licensee will then be permitted to operate from that site as a scrap metal dealer including transporting to and from those sites from any local authority area. We have published our list of scrap sites (96kb).
  • A Collector’s Licence (381kb) – this authorises the licensee to operate as a mobile collector in the area of the issuing local authority permitting them to collect scrap metal as appropriate. This includes commercial as well as domestic scrap metal. If a mobile collector operates within more than one local authority’s district, a licence will be required for each authority that (s)he operates in. We have published our list of scrap collectors (92kb).

 

In order to apply for a licence under the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 persons will be required to make an application to the council. The application form should be accompanied by the following:

  • The relevant fee.
  • A basic DBS check for every person named in the application, which is less than 3 months from the date of issue (see information below). 
  • A passport style photograph of every person named on the application (If applying for a collectors).

All applicants and named persons will be required to prove their identity by means of photographic identification, e.g. a passport or photo card driving licence and a utility bill. It is therefore necessary that your application is given to the licensing team in person. Your identity and your DBS certificate will be checked and copied, then immediately returned to you. Please discuss these requirements with a licensing officer if you are unsure what to bring in with your application.

Exemptions

If scrap metal is a by-product of your business you may be exempt from the need to be licensed, it will be necessary for you to prove the proportion of your business that consists of dealing in scrap metal.

Mobile Collectors

Mobile Collectors who work in different council areas will have to apply for a collectors licence in each of those areas. You must contact the relevant council to obtain an application form.

Every person working on a vehicle collecting scrap metal must be licensed unless they are properly employed by a business licensed for a site or as a collector.

DBS Certificate

Before you apply, you and every person listed on the application form, need to obtain a Basic Disclosure Certificate from Disclosure Scotland.
