Manufacturers in the Marches are being urged to be aware of changes around the marking of goods for the GB market.
Before January 1 2021, manufacturers could use CE marking or other appropriate marking.
But now they are required to use a UKCA conformity marking if placing certain goods on the GB market.
Goods that are lawfully CE marked will be accepted in the UK until 1 January 2022 for certain goods.
Businesses must be ready to use the UKCA marking from 1 January 2022 at the latest, although you should look to use the UKCA marking as soon as possible.
