Introducing our latest Licensing Resource Tool

We are please to announce the latest addition to our ever increasingly popular Licensing Resource Tools – The Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 Application Process tool.

The tool aims to help licensing officers determine an application for scrap metal dealers licences under the new Act due to commence on the 1st of October.  The Home Office has indicated that notwithstanding the fact that the Act is not due to commence until October, Councils will be expected to be set up to take applications by 1st September 2013.

We understand that the guidance to accompany the Act is currently with the Treasury for approval and that the Home Office expect to release it in about 3-4 weeks.
