We have been working hard to support industry make the transition to the new UKCA regime and we are grateful for all the work businesses have already done to prepare. However, we are aware that the pandemic continues to impact businesses, and this has made adapting to the new regime more challenging. As a result, we have decided to provide an additional year for businesses to adapt to UKCA requirements.
This means that all product sectors now have until 1 January 2023 to get ready to use the UKCA marking, with the exception of medical devices. This is the final deadline and there will be no further extension. The complete list of all the sectors covered by the UKCA marking can be found here.
We are fully committed to supporting industry adapt to the UKCA regime. Over the next 15 months, the UK government will continue to engage actively with industry and support their preparations for the new requirements. We are hosting our next webinar aimed at Polish businesses, which will include a short session on the UKCA marking, on Wednesday 20 October at 10:00. This is intended to help businesses understand changes and the actions they need to take. We would encourage you to share this with interested businesses; they can register for the event using this link: eventbrite.co.uk/e/bpdg-poland-industry-day-short-straits-focused-tickets-167851691929
