Government Grants Extension on CE Mark Use

The Government have confirmed that the CE mark can be used until 1 January 2023.

Ian Moore, CEO at the Fire Industry Association states: “We are proud to have worked collaboratively with the Government to highlight our industry’s concerns with the implementation of the UKCA mark and the timeline that was previously suggested. We have been working with the overwhelming majority of our members through our UKCA Special Interest Group to discuss the impact of the UKCA mark and communicate their issues to the Government. This positive result comes after the extensive time and effort that has been undertaken by the FIA team on behalf of our members.” 

The Government have now confirmed that they will grant a 12 month extension for UK products to continue using the EU’s “CE” safety mark.

“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,” the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy said.

The Government website on the UKCA states:

‘You can continue to use the CE marking for goods placed on the market in Great Britain until 1 January 2023. The UKCA marking must be used for placing goods on the market in Great Britain from 1 January 2023. The UKCA marking can be used now and we encourage businesses to start using the UKCA marking as soon as possible.’
