Junk, Salvage & Insurance Entities

The Anti Car Theft Act requires junk and salvage yards, auto recyclers, and insurance companies to report (at least monthly) vehicles deemed junk, salvage, or total loss to NMVTIS since March 31, 2009. Any business or individual handling five or more junk, salvage, or insurance (total loss) vehicles annually must submit the required reports to NMVTIS through a third-party reporting service. Reporting can be as frequent as desired but not less frequent than monthly. The U.S. Department of Justice encourages submission of information to NMVTIS as soon as possible to prevent fraud and theft and to protect consumers. If you have questions regarding the reporting requirements please email the Bureau of Justice Assistance.
