UKCA: CE mark to be accepted without restriction

However, this does not apply to all CE jurisdictions. For instance, construction and medical products will not be allowed to be marketed with CE marks in the UK.

On 1 August 2023, the British government (Dept. for Business and Trade) announced that the CE mark will continue to be authorised as a mark of conformity for the British market for an unlimited period of time.

However, this does not apply to all CE jurisdictions. For instance, construction and medical products will not be allowed to be marketed with CE marks in the UK. However, we would interpret the fact that RoHS legislation is also lacking so far as a mistake. It also remains to be seen how the British government will ensure that EU and UK law are reliably synchronised in the event of any amendments.

Great Britain (England, Wales, Scotland) remains a non-EU country with regard to harmonisation legislation, i.e. there must always be an importer in the UK for a product with corresponding obligations. It remains to be seen what exactly the final wording of the legislation will look like.

It is also unclear whether manufacturers in the UK will have freedom of choice between CE and UKCA marking for sales in the UK itself.
