Due to the UK leaving the EU, product manufacturers must get to grips with the UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) mark; a new UK product marking regulation to be used in place of the CE mark for goods being placed on the UK market.
This new requirement was due to come into force on 1st January 2022. Luckily, the Government realised it was an impossibility for manufacturers to get this sorted across supply chains and gave an extra years grace.
Manufacturers will now have to have their entire stockholding refreshed with properly labelled stock by the 1st Jan 2023.
We have had feedback from some of our members that although the relevant regulations being enforced are the same as the EU, the actual specific documents are in a completely different form and it’s certainly not straightforward finding which directive is the relevant one to implement.
We wanted to provide a space to bring people together to discuss this change and share ideas. If this is affecting your business and you’d like to discuss it with other MI companies, please come along this Friday at 10am. These sessions are really informal and open to any business operating across the MI sector.
If you’d like to come along, you can register to attend this week’s session here
