UKCA Implementation Delayed Until 31 December 2024
In response to the impact of the pandemic on businesses, the UK Government has extended the deadline to 31 December 2024 to apply UKCA marks for certain products to demonstrate compliance with product safety regulations, rather than 1 January 2022.
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. The UKCA marking replaces the product safety labelling the UK previously used while a member of the EU, such as the CE mark. Businesses must take action to ensure they are ready to apply UKCA marking by 31 December 2024, the final deadline.
