Will MetalTrack help my business to stay legal?

Yes, MetalTrack can scan every seller’s ID and record all of the details you need, as explained above. You can search through all of the information and know that it’s stored on our secure servers.

We often find that it’s best for us to understand your business first, though, so we can make sure that Metal Track will be the best solution for your business. One of our advisors will discuss your requirements with you and provide all of the options available. We can also visit your site and have a look at your computers and your whole operation, if it helps.

What are the current scrap metal laws?

The Scrap Metal Dealers Act prevents cash purchases from unidentified sellers and make sure that all scrap metal dealers, merchants and vehicle dismantlers are licenced by a local authority. All dealers and merchants will need to verify every seller’s identity by checking a photo driving licence (or equivalent) and record the details of every transaction; a description of the metal, the date and time, the seller’s vehicle registration number and the seller’s full name and address, among other details. The information will need to be kept for two years.
