Please Note: We cannot proceed with your licence renewal until the tax check is completed and we have received the code.
Are You Eligible?
Restriction on the holding and storage of scrap metal may be imposed by a Court.
How We Process Your Application
Dealers are required to keep specified records of scrap metal movements.
Your application will be processed within 3 months.

There are fees for licence applications. If an application is refused only a small portion of the fee is returned.
