End-of-Life Vehicle Management

ARA supports laws and regulations which allow licensed automotive recyclers to acquire salvage and end of life vehicles when the certificate of title is not available, for the sole purpose of recycling parts and materials.

Automotive recyclers and dismantlers should all be registered with the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS).  They should also handle with proper state, provincial and/or federal license(s), registration(s) and/or permit(s).  Moreover, ARA believes that all de-titling laws should apply equally to all individuals and entities that process salvage and end of life vehicles.
