The UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed)

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 applies to most goods previously subject to the CE marking.

The technical requirements (‘essential requirements’) you must meet – and the conformity assessment processes and standards that can be used to demonstrate conformity – are largely the same as they were for the CE marking, but this could change in the future as UK and EU legislation diverge.

The document below and link to the government website will help you to manage the situation.
