When is UKCA Marking Required?

Compliance Expert Clare Goodwin explains

Any product that was already on the UK market prior to 1 January 2021 is still able to bear the CE marking. There is also a one-year grace period for most products entering the UK market from Europe however the conformity assessment must be carried out by a UK recognised body. The grace period does not apply to products if the third-party conformity assessment was carried out by an EU recognised body.
