The UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) marking is a new UK product marking that is used for goods being placed on the market in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland). It covers most goods which previously required the CE marking. The UKCA marking came into effect on 1 January 2021. However, to allow businesses time to adjust to the new requirements, you will still be able to use the CE marking until 1 January 2022 in most cases.
The UKCA marking applies to most goods previously subject to the CE marking. It also applies to aerosol products that previously required the ‘reverse epsilon’ marking. However, it will not be recognised in the EU market. Products that require CE marking will still need a CE marking to be sold in the EU.

- Toy Safety
- Recreational Craft and Personal Watercraft
- Simple Pressure Vessels
- Electromagnetic Compatibility
- Non-automatic Weighing Instruments
- Measuring Instruments
