The Business Services and Regulation Division is responsible for the registration of Scrap Metal Dealers in Mississippi. The Division enforces the Mississippi Scrap Metal Property Dealer Registration Act. Implemented in 2008 and revised in 2022, the act was the first of its kind in the country. Strong enforcement of this act deters metal theft and serves to protect the scrap metal industry.
Scrap Metal Dealers and Processors are required to register with the Division. Registration is valid for two years from the date of registration. Scrap Metal Dealers and Processors must register online and report customer transactions and dealer-to-dealer transactions online with the Secretary's designee-LeadsOnline.com.
Questions about registration can be directed to the Division at 601-359-9055.
