Scrap metal dealer registration


Scrap metal licence application form

To be a scrap metal dealer, you must register with your local authority.

A scrap metal dealer shall be considered operating a business in an area if:

  • the dealer uses a local place as a scrap metal store
  • the dealer does not use a place as a scrap metal store, but has a main residence locally
  • the dealer does not use a place as a scrap metal store, but has a place for business purposes locally

Applicants must state:

  • their full name
  • the dealer’s address, or, with a company, their registered or principal office
  • the address of each place used as a scrap metal store, if any
  • if the business runs without a scrap metal store
  • if the business runs without a scrap metal store but applicants use a place for business purposes, and that place’s address

The registered dealer must notify the local authority if these details change, or if they cease to be a scrap metal dealer.

You may act as though your application is granted even if you have not heard from the local authority by the application’s expected end.

There is no other route for redress.
