If you haven't submitted your recovery targets then they could be coming after you!
Government legislation has led many of us to react quickly to new rules and by doing so we have usually paid a heavy price for early compliance.
The 2006 85% recycling targets are another area where the industry was warned that failure to achieve the target would result in prosecution. And now, after 5 years of delay, we are finally starting to see this happen. In the last month or so nine businesses have been taken to court & successfully prosecuted by BIS (the Government Department with responsibility for enforcing the target requirements). And there are already more prosecutions scheduled for early 2012. All those taken to court have been found guilty with fines ranging up to £4,000.
Duncan Wemyss, the Secretary of MVDA explained, “Although it has taken time for this to happen at least those who are doing the right thing aren’t getting penalised now”. He went on, “We should see these prosecutions as a warning shot across the bows. These targets apply to us all and it’s only fair that we all comply. Let’s face it, those doing the job as required by the law are being put at a financial disadvantage to those who choose to ignore the 85% (and soon to be 95%) recovery target”. The initial 20 or so prosecutions may be regarded as ‘test cases’ for BIS enforcement, so it remains to be seen whether the level of fine in future will more closely reflect the costs that an illegal operator avoids.
The prosecutions so far have only been against companies that have failed to report their targets at all, and not those who have reported but failed to meet the 85% target. No doubt that will come once the more serious problem of failure to report has been sorted. Meeting the 85% is a tough job. Some specialist dismantlers have reached this figure on their own; by the nature of their business model they can sell more of a vehicle than a general dismantler. But the vast majority of ATFs have relied on the additional inputs supplied by the shredder operators from their post shredder technologies.
