New guidance explains how to use the UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) marking. The UKCA marking is a new UK product marking that will be used for goods being place on the market in Great Britain. It covers most goods which previously required the CE marking. The UKCA marking can be used from 1 January 2021. However, to allow businesses time to adjust to the new requirements, you will still be able to use the CE marking until January 2022 in most cases.
