We check that the facility complies with the municipality's environmental requirements and that the applicant has planning permission for the facilities and authorization for the activity.
In accordance with the rules for car scrapping stipulated in the Ordinance on car scrapping (SFS 2007:186), the place of car scrapping shall be restored to its original state, if and when the activity ceases. Section 35 also states that the County Administrative Board may require a form of security for the measures deemed necessary. In most counties, a bank guarantee is required, which is calculated from the number of vehicles that may be stored at the same time.
End-of life vehicles may be submitted to an authorised treatment facility or a collection facility, that is, a place allocated by the producers to receive the end-of life vehicles. Collection facilities for end-of life vehicles are a result of an EU Directive that clarifies the responsibility of producers for end-of life vehicles. Collection facilities should be reported to the County Administrative Board by the vehicle producers.
