Non-Ferrous Metals Training: Curtailing Catalytic Converter Theft

This training is intended for law enforcement and Secondary Metals Recyclers (SMRs). With the enactment of H. 3991 (Act 80) in 2021, the Non-Ferrous Metals permitting and enforcement processes have changed. So, to ensure both law enforcement and recyclers are interpreting and implementing the law in the same manner, the SC Sheriffs' Association is partnering with the SC Recyclers' Association, the SC Police Chiefs' Association, and the SC Law Enforcement Officers' Association to host a webinar on the new law and processes.
