Dear Colleagues,

We have received an update from the UK Government (Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy) in relation to extending the recognition period for CE marking in Great Britain.

Below the key points for EU companies to be aware.
• Introduction of legislation to continue recognition of the CE marking until 31 December 2024 for most goods being placed on the market or put into service in Great Britain, including recreational craft, after which the UKCA marking will be obligatory
• Allowing conformity assessment activities for CE marking undertaken by 31 December 2024 to be used by manufacturers as the basis for UKCA marking until the expiry of the certificate or until 31 December 2027, whichever is sooner
• Continue to allow businesses to affix the UKCA marking, and to include importer information for products from EEA countries on an accompanying document or a label until 31 December 2027

Further information can be found on the website of the UK Government and updated guidance below:

For any questions, please do not hesitate to let us know.

Best regards,
