Motor vehicle: End-of-life vehicle disposal (certificate of destruction)

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

Last owners of passenger cars and light commercial vehicles (vehicles for the transportation of goods up to 3.5 tons) who wish to dispose of their end-of-life vehicles can return them to the manufacturer or importer free of charge. Manufacturers and importers are obliged to take back end-of-life vehicles and must set up a nationwide take-back system themselves or through authorized third parties.

Excluded from free take-back are end-of-life vehicles from which essential parts or components or electronic control units have been removed and which were not registered in the European Union for at least one month prior to final deregistration.

If a vehicle is finally decommissioned and disposed of, a certified end-of-life vehicle recycling company must issue a certificate of destruction for the vehicle registration authority.
