  • Trade scrap as a product
    • The price you can receive for scrap as a product is much higher than the price you can receive for waste
    • Your scrap can be sold to any legal entity, not only those with permits to operate with waste, so you can gain more business partners
  • Transport scrap as a product
    • The cost of transporting scrap as a product is significantly lower than the cost of transporting it as waste
    • You do not have to hire a company registered for the transport of waste or issue specialized documents for the shipment of waste

    • You do not have to meet the requirements for exporting waste, which include issuing a separate set of documents for each change from a predefined route

This regulation states that manufacturers must implement a quality management system, based on ISO 9001, that can be used to demonstrate if certain types of scrap cast iron, steel and aluminum comply with the requirements of EU/333/2011. With the implementation and certification of such a quality management system, manufacturers can prove that this scrap metal ceases to be waste.
