WHAT IS THE UKCA MARK?

The UKCA Mark or UKCA marking (UK Conformity Assessed marking) is the UK product marking requirement that will be needed for power supply products being placed on the market in Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales) after January 1st 2021, replacing the EU requirements for the CE Marking, although in Northern Ireland, the CE marking will continue to be accepted.

The UKCA marking will indicate that a product placed on the United Kingdom market meets the UKCA Marking requirements. UKCA marking was specified in the original ‘EU Exit’ UK Statutory Instruments, and for most products, this is defined in UK Statutory Instrument 2019 No. 696 and amendments (exceptions being Automotive, Marine and Medical devices for example).

Initially, the UKCA marking requirements will align with CE marking requirements that they replace, but over time divergence is possible. Note – Additional requirements may need to be considered for products being placed on the UK Northern Ireland market due to separate Northern Ireland Protocol requirements.

WHEN IS UKCA MARKING REQUIRED?

UKCA can be used to replace the CE Marking requirements at the end of the European Union exit transition period. This is referred to officially as the implementation period completion day (“IP Completion day”) which is scheduled to occur at 23:00 on 31st December 2020.

The UK Government has released updated guidance for UKCA marking and for most products a transitional arrangement for acceptance of CE marking until 1st January 2022 has currently been stated (the exception being medical devices for example which is longer). This will need to be backed by updated or amended “EU Exit Statutory Instruments” in the future before this becomes legislation.
