United Kingdom: UKCA marking after Brexit

The CE marking and related RED requirements will be fully accepted until 31st December 2021, as long as the valid CE standards are not modified and remain valid up to this date.
From 1st JAN 2022, national UKCA assessment process is planned to be established. For this, a national UK conformity assessment body has to be involved for getting confirmation of UK conformity. This process is still not defined by UK government.
The UKCA marking is already created as shown in following graph. But it mustn’t be mix up with “UK Cheerleading Association”, which is also abbreviated with UKCA.
