Businesses given more time to apply new product safety marking

The UK Government has confirmed businesses will have an extra year to start using the new UKCA product safety marking.

Applicable for most products placed on the market in England, Scotland and Wales, the UK Conformity Assessed (UKCA) marking allows the UK to have control over its goods regulations, maintaining the high product safety standards expected in the UK.

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

The UKCA marking replaces the product safety labelling the UK previously used while a member of the EU, such as the CE mark
