However, the scrap generation slip should contain the details of the quantity. The slips should have a serial control and should be authorised by a responsible person. The scrap yard should receive the material on the basis of slip and enter the receipt in the scrap register.  Weighment should be carried out at the scrap yard if not already made at the production floor.  The weighment should be carried out in the presence of a person each from the scrap yard and the production.

The scrap yard person should sign on one copy of the slip as an acknowledgement of having received the scrap qty as given in the slip and return the slip back to the generation point. The second copy of the slip is to be retained at the scrap yard.
