News updates: Scrap metal businesses

Due to facility issues, this licensing program has limited operations. There may be delays in responding to requests. We apologize for the inconvenience. We’re working toward resuming all business operations as soon as possible.

Scrap metal license required

The legislature recently passed House Bill 1552: Reducing scrap metal theft, which:

  • Requires licensing of scrap metal businesses.
  • Sets new requirements for scrap metal transactions and recordkeeping.

In response to this new law, we’ll work with stakeholders to create new rules and requirements for licensing scrap metal businesses. To learn more about proposed rules and how you can participate in the rulemaking process, see Laws and rules.
