The 2018 state legislative sessions are in full swing and ISRI is already tracking 85 bills and regulations targeting materials theft and purchases of scrap metal.
While most of these won't make it to the finish line, last year 15 states passed amendments to some aspect of their metals theft laws, and recyclers shouldn't expect this year to be any different. That's why ISRI makes it easy to keep track of the latest requirements with the State Metals Theft Law Database.
ISRI built the database as a public resource to help visitors understand the web of laws across the states and combat some of the inaccurate information floating around on the web. You can access pre-made and custom reports on provisions such as payment restrictions and documentation requirements and easily compare the provisions between states. Members also have access to the state metals theft law summaries and legislative tracking through ISRI's State Resources and Tracking page. If you or your team would like a walkthrough of these or other resources, please contact Danielle Waterfield.
