Changes to the transition from the CE mark to the new UKCA mark

(Pubbl. 13/07/2022)
The United Kingdom Government has recently announced (20/06/22) changes to the transition from the CE Mark to the new UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) Mark that will apply to some products placed on the market in England, Scotland and Wales.
 
In short, for products under AVCP system 3 pursuant to Regulation (EU) No 305/2011, existing tests from EU Notified Bodies will be accepted (where testing was carried out before 31 December 2022), meaning that there will be no need to retest and recertify products that have already been tested before this date, reducing the impact on administrative tasks, leaving you with more time to focus on ‘business as usual’.
 
Therefore, products that are CE marked (and the data used to gain this mark), manufactured and imported before the aforementioned deadline will be able to gain UKCA marking and can be sold in the UK without further testing.

In the capacity of Notified Laboratory, Istituto Giordano can perform construction product CE marking tests that may subsequently be used to obtain the UKCA mark since it is an EU recognised notified body.
