UKCA Certification

UKCA – A mandatory marking for products to be placed within the Great Britain

 

WHAT IS UKCA Certification?

UKCA Certification (UK Conformity Assessed) is an innovative and distinguishable identity of a product highlighting the produce intent and purpose to be placed and sold in the Great Britain market (England, Wales and Scotland).

It is mandatory that certain products, which have existing regulations, are required to bear the UKCA mark from 1 January 2023. It is imperative that the technical or essential requirements must be met, prior to application of UKCA mark. Ascent EMIRATES assists aspiring organizations to utilize the conformity assessment procedures and identify the standards that can be used to demonstrate conformity under UKCA marking or UKCA certification. These are similar to the CE marking process.

All products that fall under designated existing regulations should mandatory bear the UKCA mark. This regulatory framework covers majorly the products that previously required the CE mark. These regulations are effective from 1 January 2021, for all new products placed in the GB market. However, the products previously placed in the market as CE, will have to be replaced by UKCA mark from 1 January 2023. This timeframe has been facilitated to the manufacturers to adapt to the new obligations.

Products to be placed on the Northern Ireland market, would require the UKNI mark. The European Union authorities do not accept the UKCA mark or UKCA Certification, and hence new products that have the UKCA mark will also require CE mark to place the product in European market.
