Who Reports to NMVTIS?

ShutterStock (see reuse policy).

Several businesses and agencies are required to regularly report specific information to NMVTIS. These entities include:

  • State motor vehicle titling agencies.
  • Insurance carriers (including some self-insuring entities).
  • Auto recyclers and junk and salvage yards (including scrap vehicle shredders and scrap metal processors, as well as “pull- or pick-apart yards,” salvage pools, salvage auctions, and other types of auctions, businesses, and individuals that handle salvage vehicles (including vehicles declared a “total loss”)).

These entities are required to report various types of information on vehicles; however, there are some limited exceptions to these reporting requirements (e.g., certain types of recyclers may not be able to identify VINs for reporting, junk or salvage yards handling less than 5 salvage vehicles per year are exempt from reporting).
