Applus+ Laboratories will be able to offer market access services for both the EU+EFTA Market (CE marking) and the UK (UKCA marking).
The new UKCA mark and the transitional period
Following the Brexit agreement between the UK and the EU–and after the transitioning period ends on 1st of January 2023–the UK will no longer be aligned with EU regulations for EMC and Radio products conformity and market access rules (CE marking).
Instead, the UK launched its own conformity assessment scheme for market access in Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales), known as UKCA marking. However, UKCA marking alone cannot be used for products placed on the Northern Ireland market. See the guidance on placing goods on the Northern Ireland market.
Applus+ Laboratories accredited to provide conformity assessment for both UK and EU markets
To ensure our clients enjoy an uninterrupted market access service, our UK subsidiary 3C Test Limited has obtained the status of UK Market Conformity Assessment Body (UKMCAB) in the fields of EMC and Radio.
From now on, we will be able to provide a one-stop-shop service for manufacturers that sell their products in both markets, through our certification bodies in UK and Europe.
