Scrap metal licensing

A large number of people have been affected by the illicit theft and sale of scrap metal, whether it affected them by problems on rail lines or theft of lead from a roof – both dangerous activities. Local authorities will continue to act as the main regulator but the new Act gives Licensing Authorities more powers, including the power to refuse a license and powers to revoke licenses if the dealer is considered unsuitable. Both the Local Authority and the Police have been given powers to enter, inspect and close premises.
