Get your products UKCA marked to comply with the new UK regulations on placing manufactured goods on the market in Great Britain. CE marking will no longer be applicable and this will ensure that you can continue business.

REGULATORY UPDATE

The British government announced on November 14, 2022 that :

  • CE marking will allow products to be placed on the UK market until 31/12/2024 (without UKCA marking)
  • The CE marking can be used as a basis for UKCA marking until 31/12/2027.

LEARN MORE ABOUT UKCA MARKING

The UKCA mark is the product mark used for products marketed in Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales). AFNOR UK is accredited to issue the UKCA mark for the following products:
- gas appliances and related products
- construction products
- Fire safety products.

 

ENSURING A SUCCESSFUL TRANSITION

Where a product is covered by the UKCA regime, the UKCA marking must be used from 11pm on 31 December 2022; In most cases, if your product has been placed on the GB market with a CE mark before 11pm on 31 December 2022, it does not need to be remarked or recertified to UKCA requirements and can continue to circulate on the GB market until it reaches its end user. This also includes if the CE marked product was conformity assessed and certified by a conformity assessment body established in the UK before 11pm on 31 December 2020. There is no need to re-test and re-mark existing imported stock for goods that are manufactured, CE-marked and imported under contract into the UK by 11pm on 31 December 2022. There are different rules for construction products.

After 11pm on 31 December 2022, the CE mark may no longer be used and the UKCA mark must be used instead for placing products on the GB market. The government intends to introduce legislation enabling the UKCA marking to be placed on a label affixed to the product or on a document accompanying the product until 11pm on 31 December 2025. This is intended to apply for most products requiring UKCA marking unless there are special rules in place for your specific product area.
