The UK Government has announced that it has extended the deadline for transitioning from the CE mark to the new UKCA mark by one year.

All businesses that were expected to demonstrate compliance with UKCA product safety regulations by January 1, 2022 now have until January 1, 2023 to do so. This applies to all sectors except medical devices, which has a new deadline of June 30, 2023.

You can find the new UK Government guidance here: Using the UKCA marking - GOV.UK

SGS is an approved body for the UKCA mark and can help your business ensure a smooth transition. We will support your efforts to have your products approved for the UK market as well as CE marked and certified under other legislations, such as ASME, KOSH, DOSH, Brazil, etc.
