New labelling of PPE goods for the UK market In 2022, the CE marking will be gradually phased out, and the UKCA marking will be phased in.
As a result of the UK leaving the EU, the country has adopted its own legislation regarding PPE goods for the British market.
The UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) marking is a new UK product marking that is used for PPE goods being placed on the market in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland). The UKCA marking will replace the existing CE marking used within the EU.
The final change will take place in 2022 when the CE marking will be gradually phased out as the new UKCA marking is phased in. This means that both labels will appear in 2022. After 1 January 2023, all products placed on the UK market must use the UKCA marking. However, the British government will introduce legislation so that the UKCA marking can be placed on a label affixed to the product or on a document accompanying the product until 31 December 2023.
Ejendals has started implementing UKCA marking on our products and will deliver UKCA-labelled and certified products to our customers no later than 1 January 2023.
