The Auto Recycling Associations of the Australia, United Kingdom, United States, and Malaysia have signed an historic agreement to increase collaboration, cooperation and communications to provide a united global voice for the Automotive Recycling Industry.
The Motor Trades Association of Australia (MTAA) and the Auto Parts and Recycling Association of Australia (APRAA) initiated the Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) with other organisations as an outcome of an International Roundtable held earlier this year in the United Kingdom. The Auto Recycling Associations of Canada, New Zealand, Japan and others are currently considering becoming signatories to the MoU.
Already, participating International Auto Recycling Associations have provided intelligence, statistics, and identified issues confronting automotive recycling and associated businesses in each jurisdiction as well as other information on the global automotive market impacting the industry. The associations are also sharing briefings on Electric Vehicle (EV) dismantling and associated safety issues and overall occupation health and safety requirements for automotive recycler professionals.
