As the UK is no longer in the EU, CE marking is no longer be recognised within the UK, however there is a transition period where the CE Mark will be recognised as a valid form of conformity. This transition period ends on the 31/12/2021.
Instead a new mark will be required in the UK to replace the CE Mark. This will be the UKCA Mark (United Kingdom Conformity Assessed). The CE marking is still required for the EU market. You will be able place the UKCA and CE marking on a product simultaneously if it is destined for both markets. The UKCA Mark is subject to parliamentary approval.
The process for applying the UKCA Mark would mirror that of applying the CE Mark, however the UKCA Mark will be limited to the UK market. Changes will include:
Important items to note are:
CE Marked goods, such as self-declared machinery that meet EU requirements (where these match UK requirements) can continue to be placed on the UK market until 1st January 2022 where EU and UK requirements remain the same. Goods placed on the UK market after this date must be supplied with a UK Declaration of Conformity and the UKCA Mark on the manufacturers name plate. The key phrase is ‘placed on the UK market’.
