What is a certified register?

This means that the local authority has approved the register. The mayor has certified the Online Second-Hand Buyers’ Register (DOR). If you have your own business system, you can connect it to the DOR free of charge. That way, you immediately meet the legal requirements.

Who is required to keep records

You must keep records if you buy up used and unregulated goods and resell them. Unregulated goods are items that are usually not or almost never for sale.

You need to keep records if you trade in, for example, metals, precious stones, timepieces, works of art, cars, motorbikes, mopeds, bicycles, photographic, film, radio, audio and video equipment and computers and laptops.
