As of February 2024, UL Solutions, through UL International (UK) Ltd., has expanded its Approved Body scope for United Kingdom Conformity Assessment (UKCA) for Medical Devices, offering manufacturers a new route to market and product marking, the UKCA marking. UL International (UK) Ltd. Is now fully equipped to conduct conformity assessments for the UKCA marking for Medical Devices under Part II of the Medical Devices Regulation (MDR) as they apply in Great Britain   (SI 2002 NO 618, as amended; UK MDR 2002). The full scope of this designation is available on the Medicine and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) website.

The future core regulation is expected to go into force in 2025 (see Roadmap towards the Future Regulatory Framework for medical devices ). UL International (UK) Ltd. can partner with your current European Union (EU) notified body to support your UKCA application processing.
