Deadline for Moving Certificates to an EU-27 Notified Body in a No Deal Brexit Scenario
On 29 March 2019, UK Notified Bodies will no longer be recognised by the remaining EU-27 Member States. As such, UK bodies will not be in a position to perform conformity assessment tasks under the CPR. If UK manufacturers wish to continue placing product on the EU-27 market they must either:
- Apply for a new certificate issued by an EU-27 Notified Body, or
- Arrange to have their UK conformity assessment certificates transferred to an EU-27 Notified Body which would then take over the responsibility for those certificates.
EITHER OPTION – THE MOVE MUST BE COMPLETED BEFORE 29 MARCH 2019.
IF THE MOVE IS NOT MADE BY THIS DATE THEN THE PRODUCT WILL NO LONGER BE ALLOWED ON THE MARKET PLACE OF THE EU-27 MEMBER STATES AND A NEW CONFORMITY ASSESSMENT WILL BE REQUIRED.
