UKCA Legislation

The new UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) marking requirements came into force on the 1st of  January 2021. This new product mark is used for goods being placed on  the market in Great Britain (England, Wales, and Scotland).

For  most electrical & electronic products that previously displayed the  CE mark, the UKCA mark will be required. The essential requirements  that must be met to use the UKCA mark will be largely the same as they  were for CE marking.

From 1 January 2022, the CE mark will not be recognised in Great Britain for areas covered by UKCA marking.
Products  bearing the CE mark would still be valid for sale in the UK so long as  it was also UKCA marked and complied with the relevant UK rules.
Like  the previous CE marking requirements, a UK Declaration of Conformity  must be drawn up for most products lawfully bearing a UKCA mark.
The  declaration will be based upon detailed product documentation, such as  instructions, designs and test results. These details will be contained  in a technical file which can be supplied, if requested by a market  surveillance authority.

Self-declaration  can still be made for Electrical Equipment (Safety) and Electromagnetic  Compatibility regulations 2016, although these must be made based upon  assessment.

This  is a simple overview of the requirements; product marking requirements  vary depending on product type, refer to the full regulations for more  information.
