On the 24th of January 2024, the Department of Business and Trade has issued an update stating that the government intends to legislate to continue recognition for EU requirements including the CE marking. This new update does not apply to the construction industry for construction products and CE will continue to be discontinued in recognition of the UKCA as planned in summer 2025.
What is UKCA marking in the construction industry?
The UKCA marking is the conformity marking used for products being placed on the market in Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales). The UKCA regime has been operational since 1 January 2021 and from this date, where a product is covered by a designated standard and meets the relevant requirements, you are able to place the UKCA marking on your product and then place the product on the GB market.
