United Kingdom announces they will delay UKCA marking requirement

On November 14, 2022, the UK government announced an extension of the deadline for implementing the UKCA mark, while still encouraging businesses to implement it as soon as possible.

CE-marked products will now continue to be accepted on the market in Great Britain through December 31, 2024, instead of December 31, 2022. It’s unclear at this time if/how this extension impacts these previously announced rules:

  1. Manufacturers may UKCA-mark their products based on CE conformity assessment certifications completed by EU bodies by December 31, 2022. There are no requirements to re-test to UKCA rules until the expiration of the 5-year CE certificate or until December 31, 2027, whichever occurs first.
  2. CE-marked products (finished products only) that were imported into the UK by December 31, 2022, may continue to be sold without proving UKCA compliance.
  3. No retesting to UKCA requirements is necessary for spare parts currently on the market. Instead, the requirements in effect when the original products were placed on the market continue to apply to the spare parts intended to repair or maintain them.
  4. Temporary UKCA markings on a separate label or an accompanying document are allowed until December 31, 2025.
  5. Effective January 1, 2026, permanent UKCA markings and a UK address must appear directly on products.

These changes do not apply to all products that require UKCA marking but do apply to EMC, radio, and electrical equipment. The first and last change listed above require legislation be introduced and approved prior to implementation.
