UKCA marking with BSI - the new product marking for Great Britain

The UKCA (UK Conformity Assessment) mark is the new UK product marking that will be required for certain products being placed on the market in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland). It covers most products that previously required the CE mark.

The UK Government has confirmed that the UKCA mark will come into force on 1 Jan 2021, although CE marking will continue to be recognized in the UK until the end of 2021, as long as the UK and EU regulations remain aligned. However, from the beginning of 2022 only products with UKCA marking will be accepted in Great Britain.

Organizations wanting to ensure they are resilient and can maintain access to the UK should start their preparation to affix the UKCA marking now.

As the UK National Standards Body and one of the first organizations to be confirmed as an approved body for UKCA marking BSI is delighted to support organizations at this time.
