Brexit: using UKCA marking

The UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) marking is a new UK product marking that is used for goods being placed on the market in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland). It covers most goods which previously required the CE marking, known as ‘new approach’ goods.

The UKCA marking came into effect on 1 January 2021. To allow businesses time to adjust to the new requirements, the CE marking can be used until 1 January 2022 in most cases.

The UK Government has produced guidance which explains how to use the UKCA marking. Find out more at  Using the UKCA marking - GOV.UK ( which includes sections on:
