Applying the new UKCA marking on products
The UKCA marking, or otherwise said ‘UK Conformity Assessed’ marking, will be the new product safety marking in the UK and replace the CE marking on certain products in the event of a ‘no-deal’ Brexit. The new UK conformity marking, still subject to parliamentary approval, is supposed to come into force after March 29th, 2019, and will not fully replace the use of CE marking. Manufacturers will need to apply the new product marking to products, sold on the UK market, only in cases when the CE marking will not be legally allowed for demonstrating compliance with the legal requirements. In other words, not all the product groups currently covered by the CE marking legislation will fall within the scope of the UKCA marking and, thus, require it.
