Since the U.K has left the European Union, the compliance requirements for placing marine equipment products on the market has changed. This guide has been created to explain the new process for getting marine equipment conformity assessed for the U.K. market in Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

The guide helps you to navigate through the differences between the compliance requirements for placing products that fall under the scope of the Marine Equipment Directive on the U.K. market under the new UKCA and UKNI marks, and the compliance requirements for these products being placed on the European market under the CE marking regulations in a post-Brexit landscape.
