Changes will make it simpler for businesses to apply new product conformity markings for most products placed on the market in England, Scotland and Wales.
The government has announced a range of changes to make it simpler for businesses to apply new product conformity markings for most products placed on the market in England, Scotland and Wales.
The UK Conformity Assessed (UKCA) mark is a mandatory mark on certain products to indicate that they conform to Great Britain legislation.
Businesses have until 1 January 2023 to start using UKCA marking which replaces the CE and reverse epsilon markings now that we have left the European Union.
“The new measures will make it simpler for businesses to adopt UKCA marking”.
- Reducing re-testing costs
- Removing the need to re-test existing imported stock
- Continuing to accept spare parts onto the GB market
- Extending labelling measures
- Recognising historic testing on some construction products
