Attain access to the Great Britain pressure equipment market with UKCA marking

UKCA MarkingBy January 1, 2023, all pressure equipment sold in Great Britain (England, Scotland, and Wales) must display the UK Conformity Assessed (UKCA) marking. UKCA replaces the European Union’s CE marking. Manufacturers and importers need to take the necessary steps to ensure that UKCA marking is affixed to their pressure equipment or face penalties. Specifically, all products must be certified under the Pressure Equipment Safety Regulation (PESR) of UKCA. TÜV SÜD makes that complex process seamless – and can have you fully certified in a matter of weeks.

UKCA for pressure equipment material manufacturers

TÜV SÜD engineers will do a site visit and perform quality audits, test materials, and provide a certificate stating that the quality system fulfills the UKCA requirement.

pressure equipment that requires UKCA Marking

If your pressure equipment has a CE certification, it can still be placed on the market in Great Britain with this marking until December 31, 2022.

Please note that the requirements in Great Britain (England, Wales, Scotland) are different from the requirements in Northern Ireland.

  • In Great Britain, products with CE marking can still be sold until December 31, 2022. From January 1, 2023 onwards, they will require UKCA marking.
  • In Northern Ireland, products with CE marking can continue to be sold after December 31, 2022. Dual labeling with UK(NI) CE is also possible.
