What is the UKCA mark? 

The UKCA (UK Conformity Assessment) mark is the new marking required on certain products sold in England, Wales and Scotland (excluding North Ireland), following the UK’s departure from the EU. It will be used to confirm the product meets current legislation requirements and will be applied to most products that currently require the CE mark in order to be placed on the UK market.

Nevertheless, products that currently require CE marking will still need a CE marking to be sold in the EU, as the UKCA mark will not be recognised in the EU market.

The UKCA marking can be used from 1st January 2021. However, CE marking will continue to be accepted until the end of 2021. From 1st January 2022 only products with the UKCA mark will be accepted in England, Wales and Scotland.
