Since 1 January 2021, it has been possible for goods to be placed on the market in the United Kingdom (UK, comprising England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) and covered by certain product legislation to bear the UKCA mark (and from 1 January 2022 this will be mandatory). The relevant product legislation is currently still comparable to that of the EU for the CE mark.
The signing of a “UK Declaration of Conformity” is obligatory in this regard. The content may vary, depending on UK legislation. What they all have in common, however, is that the full name and address of the person with product responsibility, the unique identity of the product, the applicable UK product legislation and the implementing standards designated for it must be specified. Under the “UK Declaration of Conformity”, the person responsible for the product declares that the product in question complies with UK regulations.
Recommendation: The person with product responsibility should obtain information on the differences between UKCA and the EU CE legislation at an early stage.
trade-e-bility can provide assistance with preparing the product documentation.
