Each vehicle delivered to a licensed facility will be issued with a Certificate of Destruction which is necessary for the permanent removal of the vehicle from a register of vehicles of the Department of Road Transport. Otherwise, the vehicle is deemed to be outstanding and the owner of the vehicle must still pay the registration fee for three years.

Normally, treatment once at the facility is free, but check with the licensed instillation.

The Director of Electrical and Mechanical Services Department as the Competent Authority of the Act, arrange to meet both the obligations of licensed establishments, and owners.
