In this Law the stated below terms are used in the following value:

scrap metal - products, unsuitable for direct use, or parts of products which according to the decision of the owner lost operational value owing to physical or obsolescence and containing ferrous or non-ferrous metals or their alloys, and also the metal wares having irreparable scrap, remaining balance of ferrous and non-ferrous metals and their alloys;

the owner of scrap metal - legal entity or physical person which owns uses and disposes of the scrap metal belonging to it in the limits determined by the law;

transactions with scrap metal - procurement, conversion, metallurgical conversion of scrap of ferrous and non-ferrous metals;

scrap metal collection - the activities of physical persons or legal entities connected with movement of scrap metal from the place of its education or stay to the territory of arrangement of specialized or specialized metallurgical processing enterprises and their places of acceptance;

scrap metal procurement - the activities connected with collection, purchase, storage and realization of scrap metal by legal entities or physical persons - subjects of managing, performing transactions with scrap metal;

scrap metal conversion - the activities connected with finishing scrap metal by sorting or, if necessary, pressing, packaging, crushing, cutting to the condition conforming to the established standards, regulations and rules; withdrawal of metal metallurgical conversion of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, compound from slags, and their alloys;

the paragraph of the eighth is excluded;

purchase and/or realization of scrap metal - the activities connected with transfer of property on scrap metal to other owner in exchange on the equivalent amount of means or debt obligations;

the paragraph the tenth is excluded;

metallurgical conversion of scrap metal - melting of scrap metal in metallurgical aggregates with use of additional materials and the particular technology treatments for the purpose of change of structure of metal, bringing its chemical composition to the parameters conforming to requirements of standards and receipt of the alloyed steel, the corresponding brands of non-ferrous metals and their alloys with certain technology and operational properties;

specialized enterprises (subjects of managing of all patterns of ownership) - such which perform transactions with scrap metal have in property or the weight, lomopererabatyvayushchy and weight lifting equipment assigned to the companies on the right of economic maintaining, provide fire, explosive, ecological and radiation safety according to the legislation;

- the documents containing data on origin and the owner of scrap metal, compliance to its established standards, regulations and rules blow up documents in the field of work with scrap metal, fire, ecological and radiation safety;

the export quality certificate - the document confirming compliance of the chemical composition of product to brands of foundry alloys, to standards, international standards determines production method, number of melting and is published by own accredited laboratory entered in the register of the central executive body concerning industrial policy;

household scrap metal - the products of household purpose or part of these products, unsuitable for direct use, which are containing ferrous or non-ferrous metals or their alloys and lost operational value;

industrial scrap metal - unsuitable for direct use in the industry and other industries of economy of product or part of these products, the containing ferrous or non-ferrous metals or their alloys and according to the decision of the owner lost operational value owing to physical or obsolescence, and also the metal wares having irreparable scrap, remaining balance of ferrous and non-ferrous metals and their alloys;

specialized metallurgical processing enterprises - the companies which conform to requirements imposed by this Law to specialized enterprise have in property production equipment which is provided by technology of metallurgical conversion of scrap metal, connected with change of structure of metal, its chemical composition according to standards, and underwent certification according to the procedure, established by the central executive body performing forming of the state industrial policy;

place of acceptance of specialized or specialized metallurgical processing enterprise (further - place of acceptance) - production division of specialized or specialized metallurgical processing enterprise based on which operations on procurement and conversion of scrap metal are performed. Each place of acceptance shall have weight, lomopererabatyvayushchy, weight lifting equipment, and also the respective site with hard surface which area is determined by his production requirements according to the Law;

primary metallurgical conversion of scrap metal - melting of scrap metal in metallurgical aggregates, production of ingots, chushka, plates and other semifinished products with uncertain technology properties without use of additional materials which are applied in case of production of foundry alloys according to standards.

Article 2. Legislation on scrap metal

The relations arising in the course of implementation of transactions with scrap metal are regulated by this Law, other laws of Ukraine and resolutions issued by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine in the cases provided by the law.

The law of Ukraine "About waste" does not extend to the relations arising in the course of implementation of transactions with scrap metal.

Article 3. Transactions with the scrap metal containing precious metals

Transactions with the scrap metal containing precious metals are performed according to the procedure, determined by the legislation.

Article 4. Procedure of transactions with scrap metal

Transactions with scrap metal are performed only by specialized or specialized metallurgical processing enterprises, and also their places of acceptance.

The activities connected with procurement, conversion of scrap of ferrous and non-ferrous metals and its metallurgical conversion are performed according to the procedure, established by the legislation.

The part three is excluded.

The part four is excluded.

The specialized or specialized metallurgical processing enterprise has the right according to the legislation to open the places of acceptance performing transactions with scrap metal.

The specialized or specialized metallurgical processing enterprise has the right to open places of acceptance in any regions of Ukraine without restrictions.
