The WSP inspects wrecking yards, scrap processors and hulk haulers across the state. These inspections are mandated by RCW 46.80 and RCW 46.79. These inspections include VIN verification and ownership document verification for all vehicles and/or parts that are transported to or processed by wrecking yards and scrap processors.
The following legislative declaration outlines the reasons for this requirement: 46.80.005 – Legislative declaration – The legislature finds and declares that the distribution and sale of vehicle parts in the state of Washington vitally affects the general economy of the state and the public interest and the public welfare, and that in order to promote the public interest and the public welfare and in the exercise of its police power, it is necessary to regulate and license vehicle wreckers and dismantlers, the buyers-for-resale, and the sellers of secondhand vehicle components doing business in Washington, in order to prevent the sale of stolen vehicle parts, to prevent frauds, impositions, and other abuses, and to preserve the investments and properties of the citizens of this state.
Any wrecking yard, scrap processor and/or hulk hauler inspection questions may be directed to: Kevin Carver (360) 596-3809 email@example.com.
