How to verify my car has been scrapped?

I have just passed an old car over to a scrappage company. I am now becoming concerned that the scrapper does not have a legitimate permit. The company owner collected the car from my house and signed the registration document, which he asked me to countersign and post off to the vehicle reg. offices in Shannon (to notify change of ownership). I still have the registration document. What should I do?
