UKCA Marking

As UK has left the EU, starting from January 2021 the United Kingdom Conformity Assessed (UKCA) mark is being phased to replace CE mark. Here it is what is known so far:


Does my CE certified radio product comply to UK market?

Yes, until 31st December 2021 providing the product has or will have:

a) CE Declaration of Conformity based on self-declaration OR any mandatory third-party conformity assessment by an EU recognized notified body

AND

b) Product is placed on UK market before 31st December 2021.

For details see: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/using-the-ukca-marking#check-whether-you-need-to-use-the-new-ukca-marking

From 1st January 2022 products must comply UK legislation. You can find the EU an corresponding UK legislation from here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/placing-manufactured-goods-on-the-market-in-great-britain#legislation

If you have used CE Self Declaration you need to prepare a separate Declaration for UK market. At the moment UK Regulations point to the EN/IEC standards. TESTiLABS keeps following the situation regarding any updates or changes on UK Declaration.


How to mark my product?

UKCA marking is required from 1 January 2022 onwards. This does not apply to existing stock, for example, if your good was fully manufactured, CE marked and put on the UK market before 1 January 2022. In these cases, your good can still be sold in Great Britain with a CE marking. However, UK authorities encourage manufacturers to use the UKCA marking as soon as possible.
