BSIF…UKCA Deadline Extension
In response to industry lobbying, the UK Government has just extended the deadline by one year, through until the 1st of January 2023, for the placing on the market of CE marked product to still be acceptable in GB (England, Wales and Scotland). The link below is the updated guidance just published.
This html text is the only guidance available at the moment, with product specific information (including PPE) still to be created.
While this extension is very welcome and will help to avoid the difficulties in the short term, we would advise against any relaxation of efforts in ensuring that your products are appropriately UKCA marked with the relevant UK Approved Bodies. I am told that this is the final extension that will be granted!
Northern Ireland guidance remains as was previously published in December 2020.
We will keep you updated on any other developments
