What is UKCA Marking?

Compliance Expert Clare Goodwin explains

Since 1 January 2021, due to Brexit regulations, UKCA marking has been introduced as a requirement of all products being placed on the UK market. This framework replaces the European CE marking that was applicable to products when the United Kingdom was still a part of the European Union.  

This product certification requirement is applicable to all products entering England, Scotland, and Wales, while Northern Ireland will continue to accept CE marking or UKNI marking as certification for its territory.
