The United Kingdom Conformity Assessed (UKCA) Mark

The UKCA marking is a new UK product marking that is used for goods being placed on the market in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland). It came into effect on the 1 January 2021 and covers most goods which previously required the CE marking, known as 'new approached' goods.

You can continue to use the CE marking for goods placed on the market in Great Britain until 1 January 2023. The UKCA marking must be used for placing goods on the market in Great Britain from 1 January 2023. The UKCA marking can be used now and we encourage businesses to start using the UKCA marking as soon as possible. More information can be found here.


For goods place onto the Northern Ireland market there is also a separate UKNI mark and will continue to require the CE mark to be displayed. For further information and what goods require the mark visit the Gov.UK website
