Guidance on roles and responsibilities, and conformity assessment and documentation.
On 10 August 2022 the Office for Product Safety and Standards (OPSS), published new guidance for the UKCA mark. The UKCA marking applies to most goods previously subject to the CE marking. It also applies to aerosol products that previously required the ‘reverse epsilon’ marking. The UKCA mark will be in place after the end of the transition period which started on 1 January 2021.
The new guidance focuses on:
- Roles and responsibilities; explaining the obligations and responsibilities of the economic operators looking to comply with the new UKCA marking in Great Britain (GB).
- Conformity assessment and documentation; helping companies ensue that products are properly checked for conformity and technical documents are managed correctly.
- Placing manufactured products on the market; a summary of standards and regulations applying to specific products and how to follow the applicable procedures.
On 20 June 2022 the Government announced changes to help simplify the application process of the UKCA marking for most products placed on the market in GB. You can read about these changes in this news item.
