Brexit Basics: Future Trade Between EU and UK
During the transition period, travel and trade will continue without additional charges or checks. At the end of the transition period, however, the UK will leave the EU market and customs union. New UK Conformity Assessed (UKCA) regulations are expected to replace the European CE framework. The new product marking that will be used for goods being sold on the UK market is UKCA marking.
Will UKCA marking be recognized in the EU?
No, UKCA marking will not be recognised on the EU market after the transition period. Products currently requiring a CE marking will continue to require a CE marking for sale in the European Union. To continue selling products in the EU, producers who are based in the UK will need an authorised representative to do so.
What steps should you take during the transition period?
If your company has an authorised representative that is based in the UK, you will need to find a new authorised representative that is based in Europe to continue exporting your products to the European market.
