Find a Car Recycler/ATF
How you can comply with the ELV Regulations
The End-of-Life Vehicle Regulations place responsibility on all importers of vehicles to play their part in the recycling and recovery of vehicles when they come to the end of their useful operational life.
If you are an importer of new or used cars (M1) or light commercials (N1), then you are required to be compliant with the ELV Regulations.
To be compliant you have two options; join ELVES or self-comply with the Regulations.
