Government announces UKCA Mark compliance webinars for industry

0

A series of events will be organized each month until the end of the year around new accreditation and post-Brexit safety labeling for products such as HVAC equipment

The UK government has announced that it will be hosting a series of webinars on the upcoming changes facing manufacturers to comply with the new UKCA safety mark.

These webinars will run at least once a month until December to address and answer questions from specialists and trade bodies working across a range of supply chains and sectors.

Topics to be covered will include how to ensure conformity assessment and how to understand the different product marking and labeling requirements.

A specialist webinar to understand the specific impact of the UKCA trade mark scheme for construction products will be held at a later date yet to be confirmed.

Several dedicated question-and-answer sessions will also be organized online by the government, with the first taking place on September 22.

Companies such as HVAC manufacturers based in Wales, England and Scotland are required to ensure that certain products sold in the UK carry the UKCA mark from 1 January 2023. The mark will replace EU certification used in the EU, with the exception of Northern Ireland which will continue to operate under the existing system due to the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement.

Any mainland UK based manufacturer looking to supply their products to EU markets will also need to ensure that their products are CE marked.

Building products such as radiators, sealants and tile adhesives will be among the goods which must bear the UKCA mark.

The government announced earlier this year that products such as HVAC equipment that have already obtained a valid CE safety mark from EU approved testing bodies before the end of 2022 will not need to retest same products when applying for UKCA designation.
