New measure to make UKCA marking easier

The Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities has announced a new measure to make it easier for businesses to transition to UKCA marking ahead of the end of recognition of CE marking on 31 December 2022. Read the full announcement here.

The announcement from DLUHC said, “For construction products falling under AVCP System 3, we are making changes to the requirements to affix the UK mark (also known as the UKCA mark). This will ensure the continued smooth supply of construction products when we end recognition of CE marking.

“The change will allow manufacturers with existing type tests from EU notified bodies under AVCP System 3, where the product was tested by the 31 December 2022, to affix the UK mark to their products, and to continue to supply them to the GB market without needing to be retested.”

The latest guidance on UKCA marking and Construction Products Regulation can be found here.

A DLUHC webinar will be held this afternoon to explain the new measures. You can join here. Please note that this webinar is not specific to construction products.
