One Year Extension To Accepting CE Marking In The UK

Posted by: Carl Hunt Date: 24 Aug 2021

The UK Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) have today announced an extension to the acceptance of CE marking in the UK until 1st January 2023, this means that all product areas covered by UKCA marking now have until 1st January 2023 to get ready to use the UKCA marking, with the exception of medical devices.

As the pandemic continues to impact businesses this extension does provide some relief, however this extension highlights how much businesses still have to do to prepare for the implementation of UKCA marking and businesses are encouraged to be ready for the new UK regime as soon as possible.

One point to note is that the continuing acceptance of CE marking being placed on the UK market relies on EU and UK requirements remaining the same, if any deviations exist between EU and UK requirements UKCA marking would be required.

The extension provides the time you require to complete the transition process, TÜV SÜD are here to support your transition and can offer immediate UKAS accredited UKCA certification work for the following, with an increasing scope:

  • Marine Equipment Regulations 2016
  • Electromagnetic Compatibility Regulations 2016
  • Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 2008
  • Radio Equipment Regulations 2017

With our network of EU Notified Bodies and UK Conformity Assessment Body (Approved Body), TÜV SÜD BABT, we can offer a truly one stop CE and UKCA testing and certification service.

If you require any support with either CE marking or the UKCA transition, please contact us.
