Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013: Compliance and enforcement guideThe Local Government Association has published a compliance and enforcement guide to the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013.

 

The guide sets out the new enforcement powers and tools that will be available to councils, and in some instances the police, under the new Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013.

 

Headings include:

 

1. Principles of enforcement;

2. Planning enforcement activity;

3. Responsibilities;

4. Scrap metal dealer responsibilities;

5. Council powers; and

6. List of relevant offences.
 

It forms part of a set of LGA guides to help councils understand their responsibilities under the new Act, and it is important to remember that the Act is not the only way in which you can take action to support responsible businesses and prevent crime.
