With the government’s new legislation, the UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) mark became the new UK product marking for goods being placed on the market in Great Britain, with the CE mark (together with UKNI mark) applicable to Northern Ireland. The introduction of the legislation allows CE marked goods to continue to be placed on the British market until 1st January 2023 and PRPS is on board and ready with the new UKCA mark going forward.
PRE and PRPS will continue selling goods in the UK under the CE mark as the UKCA mark is only compulsory for new products to be sold in the UK and for replacement stocks imported after CE marked products are sold or after 31st December 2021. All certifications and compliance markings will continue to be shown on PRPs packaging including the CE mark for UK sales, including WEEE and RohS. The UKCA mark will be positioned alongside (and not replace) the current CE marking.
If you have any questions concerning PRPS’s compliance to UKCA or verification of compliance is requested, please email the request to Joachim Kretschmer JKretschmer@PRP-eu.com.
