Is your business UKCA Ready?

The UK has left the EU, and the transition period after Brexit comes to an end this year.

This page tells you what you'll need to do from the 1st January 2023 regarding the new UKCA Branding on your existing CE products.

What is the UKCA mark?

The UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) marking is a new product marking for the UK that will be used for products and goods being placed on the market in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland). It covers the majority of goods which previously required the CE marking.

Selling goods in Great Britain

The UKCA marking will apply to most goods currently subject to the CE marking, and from the 1st of January 2023, the technical requirements and specifications will mostly be the same as they are now.

The UKCA marking can be used from the 1st of January 2021. However, to allow businesses time to adjust to the new requirements, you will still be able to legally use the old CE marking until the 1st of January 2023 in the majority of cases.

In some cases you will need to apply the new UKCA marking to goods being sold in Great Britain immediately from the 1st January 2023. You are encouraged to be ready to use the UKCA marking as soon as possible before this date.

The CE marking will only be valid in Great Britain for areas where GB and EU rules remain the same. If the EU changes its rules and mark your CE product on the basis of those new rules you will not be able to use the CE marking to sell in Great Britain even before the 31st December 2023.

Check whether you will need to use the UKCA marking by reading the government guidance on placing manufactured goods on the market in Great Britain.

Selling products in the EU
