Scrap Metal Dealer Registration

The Scrap Metal Theft Reduction Act was enacted by the Kansas Legislature and signed into law on June 12, 2015. Under the provisions of this law, on and after July 1, 2015, every "scrap metal dealer" operating in Kansas must obtain a license from the Kansas Attorney General.

Please see the information below on how to apply for a license as well as additional resources about the Scrap Metal Theft Reduction Act.



Renewal applications for 2017 are now being accepted.
Scrap metal dealers who renew their registrations before January 31 will not have to repeat the fingerprinting process for 2017.
