The Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 came into force on the 3rd December 2013 bringing with it a blanket ban on the sale / purchase of scrap metal for cash. It also heralded the introduction of more stringent ID requirements for payments to be made and the recording of ID used for any such transactions.

In order to meet the requirements of the new law whilst still protecting customer confidentiality, Karalius Brothers (Waste) Limited installed an ID and card payment system by VerifiiD / QCS.

This allows all transaction and ID records to be stored in a secure cloud environment managed by Quantum Card Services ltd meeting fully the security standards required for the UK banking sector. In this way our customers can be assured that their confidential information is protected to the highest possible standards (PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards)).

Please call for further details.
