UK Government Extends the Deadline for Applying the UKCA Mark to Manufactured Goods

November 17, 2022

On Monday November 14, 2022, the UK government announced another extension to the deadline for applying the UKCA mark to manufactured goods.

Whilst the UKCA mark can be used now, this extension means businesses can choose to use the CE mark until December 31, 2024.

In addition, businesses will be allowed to affix the UKCA mark and include importer information for products from EEA countries on an accompanying document or label until December 31, 2027.

Conformity assessment activities for CE marking undertaken by December 31, 2024 can be used by manufacturers as the basis for the UKCA marking, until December 31, 2027.
