You need the UKCA marking for Great Britain?The UK government currently displays the following notice on its website:
The government intends to introduce legislation to allow completed conformity assessment activities carried out under EU requirements (including existing testing, certification, and contractual arrangements relating to the quality control or auditing of existing certificates) undertaken by non-UK CABs (accredited by their national accreditation body) for CE certification before 1 January 2023 to be used by manufactures to declare existing product types as compliant with UKCA. Products must still bear UKCA marking and will need to undergo conformity assessment with a UK Approved Body at the expiry of the certificate or after 5 years (31 December 2027), whichever is sooner.
This will allow manufacturers to apply the UKCA mark without the need for any UK-recognised CAB involvement and continue to place their goods on the market on the basis of their existing CE type examination completed before 1 January 2023, for the lifetime of the certificate issued, or until 31 December 2027 (whichever is sooner)......"
This intention has as of today (11.11.2022) not been implemented by corresponding legislation. However, this could still happen before 1 January 2023!
In order to be prepared for this, we therefore advise all customers to make sure that they obtain or possess a valid CE type examination certificate for their products that fall under the RCR before the end of this year.
