Government confirms businesses will have an extra year to start using the new product safety marking – the UKCA marking.
Businesses will have an additional year to apply new product safety markings for most products placed on the market in England, Scotland and Wales, the government has announced today (24 August).
The UK Conformity Assessed (UKCA) marking allows the UK to have control over its goods regulations, maintaining the high product safety standards expected in the UK.
Recognising the impact of the pandemic on businesses, the government will extend this deadline to 1 January 2023 to apply UKCA marks for certain products to demonstrate compliance with product safety regulations, rather than 1 January 2022. Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy.
