UK: the obligation of the UKCA trademark postponed to 1 January 2023

The British government has postponed the requirement to use the UKCA marking for most products placed on the UK market by one year. Companies will therefore have to apply the new trademark starting from January 1, 2023 and not from January 1, 2022 as originally planned. This extension was made to give companies more time to comply with the new obligations, following the impacts of the pandemic. We remind you that the UKCA mark was established to replace the CE marking and certifies that the products released for consumption in the UK comply with the British compliance and safety rules.
In any case, companies can already use this mark instead of the CE marking to demonstrate the conformity and safety of the products.
