The End of Life Vehicle (ELV) regulations
The End of Life Vehicle (ELV) regulations set out environmental standards for the treatment and scrapping of old cars and vans, encouraging their reuse and recycling.
These regulations outline how authorised handlers should dismantle, recycle and dispose of vehicle materials. In time, all fluids will need to be removed, and certain parts dismantled before scrapping. They also include provisions on vehicle manufacturers when designing cars. These include:
- Restricting the use of certain heavy metals in the construction of new vehicles
- Providing information on the materials used in a vehicle to aid in their reuse, recycling and disposal
The regulations will introduce the licensing of authorised sites for treating ELVs. Authorised Treatment Facilities handling end of life vehicles will also be issue certificates of destruction to vehicle owners to demonstrate that will serve as evidence that a car or van has been properly disposed of.
Vehicle manufacturers and importers will also have the responsibility of bearing the cost of taking back vehicles that have no value that were put onto the market after July 2002.
