Businesses across the Marches are being urged to get up to speed with a new product marking regime being introduced in the wake of the country’s exit from the EU. 

UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) marking is the new UK product marking covering most goods currently subject to the EU’s CE marking.  

UKCA marking has been recognised as demonstrating compliance with UK regulations for products being placed on the Great British market since January 1 2021.  

The requirements for affixing the UKCA marking mirror those for the CE marking – including both the harmonised standards that are used to give presumption of conformity.  

To make the transition to the new regime as easy as possible for businesses, most CE-marked goods will continue to be allowed to be placed on the Great British market until  

January 1 2023. The transition to the new marking can take some time so businesses are encouraged to take action as soon as possible.
