UK Government extends UKCA implementation by one year

UK Government extends UKCA implementation by one year

August 26, 2021

The UK Government has confirmed that UK businesses have an additional year to implement the UKCA product safety marking in the UK.

The UKCA marking replaces the EU wide CE mark certification of a manufacturer’s conformity with European health, safety and environmental protection standards. As a result of Brexit, the UK is replacing the CE mark with the new UKCA marking for Great Britain. A UKNI mark would apply to Northern Ireland. Initially, the UKCA and UKNI marks would have applied to all goods and businesses by the end of 2021.

Following lobbying by several organisations, the UK government has given organisations an extra year to start using the UKCA and UKNI marking that applies to all goods. 

Businesses were due to begin using the UKCA marking by the end of this year (2021). The UK Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has now announced the extension, recognising “the impact of the pandemic on businesses.”

Businesses must take action to ensure they are ready to apply UKCA and the UKNI  markings by 1 January 2023, the final deadline, the BEIS said.

Our take on this: It is still unclear how these changes might impact the movement of empty cartridges between the EU and the UK. Or if you can only remanufacture and sell UKCA cartridges in Great Britain that were first placed on the market by an OEM? Will you need to collect UKNI cartridges to remanufacture and sell back to Northern Ireland. If you are selling into the EU, will you have all three marks on a cartridge?
