Issues with Scrap Metal Dealer public registers

During the course of our work on the ‘expiry reminder’ service for members it has come to our attention that there are many problems with the Environment Agency-maintained ‘scrap metal dealer’ public register.

It would appear that many of our members are NOT present on the public register, giving the clear impression (to potential customers, Police, insurers and any other interested party) that they are acting illegally.

For the sake of clarity, all vehicle dismantlers, salvage agents and scrap yards must be registered.

It is therefore essential that every member checks the public register, and any missing or incorrect details are notified to MVDA as soon as possible, giving us the licence number, local authority responsible & the name on the licence. We will take up the matter for you with the EA to get it rectified as a matter of urgency.

The public register can be viewed here:
