Good news regarding CE marking comes today via eBay, the UK government has announced it will continue to recognise the CE marking for 2 years, allowing businesses until the 31st of December 2024 to prepare for the UKCA marking. Businesses can use either the UKCA or CE marking until then, giving them flexibility to choose which marking to apply.
The UK Conformity Assessed (UKCA) marking has been introduced as part of the UK’s regulatory framework to help ensure that products comply with safety regulations which are designed to protect consumers.
However, given the difficult economic conditions, the government extended the original deadline (31st December 2022) to reduce costs and burdens for businesses.
To help you better understand the implementation of these measures, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy hosted a webinar specifically for businesses and intermediaries.
