Changes to UK product regulation and the UKCA mark

17 January 2021

Now the UK has regained its regulatory autonomy since the beginning of this year, there are changes to product regulation and the UKCA mark. To allow businesses time to adjust, the UK government has allowed that CE marked goods that meet EU requirements (where these match UK requirements) can continue to be placed on the GB market until 1 January 2022.

This includes goods which have been assessed by an EU recognised notified body. In addition, until 1 January 2023, for most goods currently subject to the CE mark, there is the option to affix the UKCA marking on a label affixed to the product or on an accompanying document. From 1 January 2023, the UKCA marking must, in most cases, be affixed directly to the product.
