The UK’s exit from the European Union brought with it Britain’s withdrawal from the scope of application of the EU Technical Law, and consequently from the “CE Conformity System” (EEA).
The UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) marking is a new UK product marking that is used for goods being placed on the market in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland). It covers most goods which previously required the CE marking, known as ‘new approach’ goods.
The UKCA marking came into effect on 1 January 2021 but you can continue to use the CE marking for goods placed on the market in Great Britain until 1 January 2023.

We, at celduc® relais, have taken up this requirement and are in the process of preparing for the compliant implementation of UKCA. We are aware of the regulations and applicable standards that apply to our products and we are taking these changes into account in our conformity assessment procedures and documentation management.
celduc® relais intends to update product labels and produce corresponding UK DoCs (Declaration of Conformity) during 2021 so that all product will be marked with both the UKCA and CE marks by the end of December 2021.
