I want to start Exporting Scrap.



I want to start exporting scrap compressors of the fridges. We have a huge demand in UAE. Can some one suggest what do I need to ensure I am fully compliant with UK Government requirements.

I have a registered company in UK which is operating since 3 years now.

Thank You


Information on the Customs requirements for exporting is given in HMRC Public Notice 275. All notices can be viewed on the GOV.UK website at www.gov.uk by typing ‘Notice 275’ in the search box and selecting the following links from the search results: > Notice 275 “Customs export procedures” a guide to UK export procedures using the National Export System.

Further detailed information regarding exporting goods outside the EU can be found by using the following link https://www.gov.uk/exporting-goods-from-the-eu-to-a-third-country-outside-the-eu

I would also suggest that you contact the Customs Authorities in the importing countries to ascertain if there are any import restrictions on such items.

Dear HMRC Advisor,

The information you have provided is not helping at all. It is actually broad information that you have directed me towards. I would like specific information in my instance. This would help a lot.

I would like to export scrap compressors of Fridges and Freezers from UK. I need information on which organisation I need to register with in UK. I’ve covered rules that apply to other countries. Such as in this instance, importing rules that apply to UAE by the Govt of UAE – No issue here. I only need information from the the UK.

Please assist.
Thank You
