UNITED KINGDOM: UKCA marking and UK approval process – further extending the acceptance of CE marking
As follow-up on our NEWS from 26th August 2021, we want to inform as follow:
All goods that previously required CE marking do not have to bear the UKCA marking until 31 December 2024. (source)
In order to give companies more time to prepare for the full implementation of the new UK regime, CE marked goods that fall within the scope of these guidelines and comply with the EU requirements (provided they are in line with the UK requirements) can continue to be placed on the UK market until 31 December 2024 where EU and UK requirements remain the same. This still applies to goods that have been assessed by an EU notified body.
From 1 January 2025, the UKCA mark must be used to place goods on the UK market.
Importers still need to take steps to ensure that they comply with the new importer obligations when bringing products from the EU onto the UK market.
