UK market access: What you need to know post-Brexit

The U.K. Conformity Assessed (UKCA) marking is a new U.K. product marking used for goods placed on the market in Great Britain. It covers most goods that previously required the CE marking.

After an initial transition phase, most products introduced to Great Britain’s market previously required CE marking must:

  • Have the U.K. Conformity Assessed (UKCA) marking.
  • Be accompanied by compliance documentation.
  • Be in compliance with the relevant regulation for Great Britain.

As of January 2021, the UKCA marking applies also to pressure equipment and will require a certificate from an UK Approved Body.

UL International (U.K.) Ltd received accreditation from UKAS and expanded its U.K. Approved Body scope to cover Pressure Equipment Regulations in the U.K (Approved Body Number: 0843). This is the equivalent of the Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) in the EU.

Trusted expertise to help you bring products to the U.K., EU markets and beyond

The accreditation enhanced UL’s portfolio and enables our experts to evaluate and certify products to U.K.-specific requirements that help ensure safer use of pressure equipment.

UL can help customers to have continuity of third-party services for access to any market in Europe, Great Britain and Northern Ireland through its accredited Notified and Approved Bodies.

We have the global reach and expertise to support market access needs during every step of the Brexit transition by combining testing and certification, global scope and localized knowledge with real-time market expertise.

Reduce costs and save time through combined testing to receive the UKCA marking and other certificates to enter the EU, U.K. and other markets around the world.
