What is the UKCA mark? 

Following the UK’s departure from the EU, the UKCA (UK Conformity Assessment) mark is the new marking required on certain products placed on the GB market (i.e. in England, Wales and Scotland – this excludes Northern Ireland, which has its own rules).

The UKCA marking is used to confirm products meet current legislation requirements, which are designed to protect consumers. The marking will be applied to most products that previously required the CE mark, to allow those products to be placed on the GB market.

Products being placed on the EU market still need CE marking, as the UKCA mark is not recognised by the EU market.

The UKCA marking can be used from 1st January 2021. However, CE marking will continue to be accepted until 11pm on 31st December 2024.
