Shahm Barhom, Group Product Certification Director at BSI, said:
“Following the Government’s announcement of a year’s extension to the CE Marking deadline I would like to encourage all manufacturers looking to place relevant regulated products on the Great Britain market not to delay their application for the UKCA mark.
“Many manufacturers are yet to submit applications for products in readiness for 1st January 2023 and we need to allow both manufacturers and Approved Bodies the appropriate time to get prepared. It is important we do not delay and continue our momentum to ensure all required products receive the UKCA mark before the revised deadline.”
Organizations now have until 1st January 2023 to have the UKCA mark affixed, except Medical Devices which have their own deadlines. The full list of sectors can be found here.
