All licences are issued for a period of 3 years.

Eligibility Criteria

Regulation Summary
Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013

Application Evaluation Process
A dealer can only hold one type of licence in any one local authority area. They have to decide whether they are going to have a site licence or a mobile collectors licence in any one area. They cannot hold both a site and collectors licence from the same council (please refer to the attached guidance for further details).

Applications should be submitted to the Council and must be accompanied by the relevant fee and a Basic Disclosure certificate for;
a) the applicant(s) or, in the case of a company, any director, secretary, partner or shadow secretary of that company; and
b) all Site Managers (Site Licences only).

Such certificates shall be issued no earlier than one calendar month prior to submitting an application.
