UKCA Statement

27 July 2022

Update 27th July 2022

There is a proposed amendment to the UKCA legislation, being circulated that has not yet been voted on by the UK Government. If the vote passes in the autumn, the legislation will be changed to allow EU Notified Body ATEX Certificates (aligning with UK Designated Standards) to be used in lieu of UK Approved Body certification.

Products that are currently ATEX approved or that have their ATEX approval completed before 31 st  December 2022 will be allowed to have this approval used as the basis for their UKCA marking, as required for applicable products sold into Great Britain from 1 st  January 2023.

Update 24th August 2021

Recognising the impact of the pandemic on businesses, the government will extend this deadline to 1 January 2023 to apply UKCA marks for certain products to demonstrate compliance with product safety regulations, rather than 1 January 2022.

The UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) marking is a new UK product marking that is used for goods being placed on the market in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland). It covers most goods which previously required the CE marking, known as ‘new approach’ goods.

The UKCA marking came into effect on 1 January 2021. However, to allow businesses time to adjust to the new requirements, businesses will still be able to use the CE marking until 1 January 2022 in most cases.

Process Instruments are working together with our suppliers to ensure products qualify with the new UKCA marking.
