What are the End of Life Vehicle Regulations?

The End of Life Vehicle Regulations are designed to reduce the impact that old cars have on the environment when they reach the end of their useful life. The regulations were introduced in two parts. The first set of regulations came into effect in 2003 and require end of life vehicles to be de-polluted, that is the removal of all hazardous materials such as fluids, tyres and batteries, at an Authorised Treatment Facility before any of its parts or materials can be re-used or recycled.The second set of regulations came into effect in 2005 and require both car makers and Authorised Treatment Facilities to meet tough recycling targets of 85% by weight per vehicle.
