Scrap metal and motor salvage licence - North Dorset

A site licence costs £733 and a collectors licence costs £597.

Before you start

Under the Metal Dealers Act we must not issue a licence unless we are satisfied that the applicant is a suitable person to carry on business as a scrap metal dealer. In the case of a partnership this means assessing the suitability of each of the partners in the partnership, while in the case of a company it means assessing the suitability of any directors, company secretaries or shadow directors.

Therefore as part of the new application process an applicant will be required to provide a Basic Disclosure certificate for these persons from Disclosure Scotland to submit along with their application form.
