Businesses will be given an additional 2 years to apply new product safety marking.
The UK Conformity Assessed (UKCA) marking has been introduced as part of the UK’s own robust regulatory framework. It shows that products comply with product safety regulations which are designed to protect consumers.
However, given the difficult economic conditions the UK Government does not want to burden business with the requirement to meet the original (31 December 2022) deadline.
The UK Government will continue to recognise the CE marking for 2 years, therefore allowing businesses until 31 December 2024 to prepare for the UKCA marking. Businesses can also use the UKCA marking, giving them flexibility to choose which marking to apply.
