    The UKCA Mark will be officially used from January 1, 2021

    As we all know, Britain has left Europe and is in the transition period of brexit, which will end at the end of 2020. According to the announcement of the British government on September 1, the UKCA logo will be officially opened for use from January 1, 2021. Most products currently under the control of CE mark must be labeled with UKCA if they are to be exported to the UK market (England, Wales and Scotland). UKCA will be used as a mandatory access mark for products in the UK market. For most products, the CE mark will no longer be used as an access mark for the UK market after 1 January 2022. All relevant products must comply with the British national standards at the beginning of "BS"

    众所周知,英国已经脱欧,目前正处于脱欧过渡期中,该过渡期将到2020年年底为止。根据英国政府9月1日的公告可知,自2021年1月1日开始UKCA标志将正式开启使用。大多数目前在CE标志管控范围内的产品将来如果要出口到英国市场(英格兰,威尔士以及苏格兰),都必须加贴UKCA标志。UKCA将作为英国市场产品强制准入标志。而对于大多数产品而言,CE标志在2022年1月1日之后将不再作为英国市场的准入标志。而所有相关产品均须符合”BS”开头的英国国家标准。

    What is the UKCA Mark?

    The UKCA (UK Conformity Assessment) mark is the new UK product marking that will be required for certain products being placed on the market in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland). It covers most products that previously required the CE mark.

    It will not be recognized in the EU market. Products that require CE marking will still need a CE marking to be sold in the EU.

    UK Government information can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/using-the-ukca-mark-from-1-january-2021


    At present, many manufacturers who need to export their products to the UK market are most concerned about whether they need to apply for ukca certification immediately for the products they want to ship

    目前很多需要把产品出口到英国市场的制造商最关心问题是自己目前要出货的产品到底是否需要马上申请做UKCA认证?

    In fact, it depends on whether there is a CE certification agency in the UK to participate in the CE certification

    关于这个问题,其实主要是看该产品是否有做过CE认证(相关法规规定必须要由欧盟公告机构参与的情况),且该CE认证之前是否由英国公告机构实施的

    If so, the product manufacturer will have to rely on the new ukca certification from January 1, 2021 to launch the product with ukca logo on the UK market. If the CE certification was carried out by a non UK EU notified body, the relevant products can continue to be put into the UK market through the use of the CE mark.

    如果是,则产品制造商必须在2021年1月1日起凭借新的UKCA认证才能将使用了UKCA标志的产品投放于英国市场。如果该CE认证之前是由非英的欧盟公告机构实施的,则相关产品可以继续通过使用CE标志在英国市场投放使用。

    It should be noted that the term "put on the market" mentioned above means that the buyer and the seller have reached an agreement, and the actual delivery of the goods is not necessarily required

    值得注意的是上文中提到的“投放市场”是指买卖双方已经达成协议,并不一定要求货物已经完成实际交接。
