UKCA Marking | relcross door controls®
Guidance for Great Britain
UK Conformity Assessed (UKCA) marking is a certification mark that indicates conformity with the applicable requirements for products sold within the United Kingdom (UK). Following the end of the ‘Brexit Withdrawal Agreement’ transition period on 31st December 2020, manufacturers and distributors selling door hardware products in Great Britain will eventually cease to use the CE mark. The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy has issued guidance relating to this and to the use of the new UKCA mark:
Also, there is new guidance specifically relating to the Construction Products Regulation published by the Department for Communities and Local Government:
The CE mark will cease to be recognized in Great Britain from 1st January 2023. New UKCA marking can be applied from
1st January 2021 therefore the two marks will coexist in Great Britain for a period of time. The UKCA mark will not be recognized outside Great Britain. Goods for sale in the EU will continue to require the CE marking as before. You will still be able to use the CE marking in the UK until 1 January 2023 in most cases. However, in the interim, it will be necessary to apply the new UKCA mark, for products placed on the market in Great Britain post 31st December 2020, only if all of the following apply:
• Is for the sale and/or installation in Great Britain
• Requires mandatory third-party conformity assessment
• The conformity assessment has been carried out by a UK conformity assessment body and your files have not been transferred to an EU-recognized notified body before 1 January 2021
Special rules will apply to goods placed on the market in Northern Ireland or sent from Great Britain to Northern Ireland. Information can be found here:
