Prepare to use the UK Mark

Posted on 21 February 2019

On 2 February the Government published the design for the UK marking that will need to be affixed to certain products sold in the UK in the event we leave the EU without a deal. This would replace the CE marking. The CE marking is placed on specific products to show that they are compliant with the relevant EU regulatory requirements. In most cases the CE marking can be applied to products tested by the manufacturer. For some products, there is a legal requirement for the product to be assessed by a third-party assessment body (usually a ‘Notified Body’) to confirm they meet relevant the requirements. In a ‘no deal’ scenario, the EU will stop recognising the competency of UK-based Notified Bodies to assess products for the EU market.

Guidance on the use of the UK marking can be found here.
