The Motor Salvage Operators Regulations 2002 under the Vehicle and Crime Act 2001 came into force on 21st October 2002 and made local authorities responsible for the provision of a registration scheme for all motor salvage operators carrying out a business within their area.

This legislation has now been repealed and replaced by the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 which replaces the registration scheme with a full licensing regime.

Those carrying out motor salvage or similar, associated and ancillary activities may need to be registered under the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 and are advised to consult that page on this site.
