We will also continue with the measures on retesting and labelling announced in June. The timescales will be amended to reflect the extension:
Reducing labelling costs by continuing to allow businesses to affix the UKCA marking, and to include importer information for products from EEA countries (and in some cases, Switzerland) on an accompanying document or a label until 31 December 2027.
Reducing re-testing costs for UKCA certification by allowing conformity assessment activities for CE marking undertaken by 31 December 2024 to be used by manufacturers as the basis for UKCA marking, until the expiry of the certificate or until 31 December 2027, whichever is sooner.
The Statutory Instrument to give effect to these changes can be found here: https://questions-statements.parliament.uk/written-statements/detail/2022-11-14/hcws366.
These changes impact only those products where BEIS is the designated authority. The departments responsible for medical devices, construction products, cableways, transportable pressure equipment, unmanned aircraft systems, rail products, and marine equipment are expected to announce their own sector specific arrangements in due course.
