Good news for companies exporting CE marked products to the United Kingdom. Today, the UK regulator has extended the foreseen deadline for the replacement of the CE marking for the UKCA marking with one more year until the 1st January 2023. This means that exporters that sell into the UK have one more year to sell their CE marked products, and to change their product labels.
This measure has been taken to grant the industry additional time to make the transition. The extension applies provided that the UK and EU product requirements are the same. The rule also includes products which have been assessed by an EU recognised notified body. Those companies that already want to affix the UKCA marking are free to do so, provided of course that their products comply with the applicable UK regulations.
We continue to continue to monitor the regulatory developments in the UK and in the EU.
