We’re pleased to receive news that the Government will continue to recognise the CE product marking in Great Britain for a further 2 years, allowing businesses to use either UKCA or CE markings. This move will undoubtedly cut costs for businesses and remove potential disruption.
Now, businesses will have until 31 December 2024 to prepare for the UKCA marking. Businesses can also use the UKCA marking, giving you the flexibility to choose which marking to apply.
Sated Design’s recommendation during this transition period is that it would be best to exercise an awareness of CE and UKCA for your project. Consult a third-party test house who are established Notified Bodies in both the UK and EU, and who specialise in the particular area of standards, compliance and certification your project requires. This will help make sure the most efficient route to compliance is adhered to.
