In what looks to be a good news day for Brexit, the list of UK Market Conformity Assessment Bodies has been published. This means that systems can now be put in place to support the application of UKCA Marking from the 1st January.
In further good news for the sector it was announced yesterday that our Element Rotterdam BV has successfully achieved Notified Body status for CPR and MED activities. In addition to this, it is recognised as a Technical Assessment Body (TAB). Having this option within the Element Group means Warringtonfire and BM Trada can continue to support clients in CE marking activities 1 January 2021.
BBA announced last month that they had a partnership in place that would enable them to continue to support CE Marking. FIS Members are urged to check the arrangements with their notified body and confirm if they will continue to rely on CE marking for the agreed transition period (to January 2022) or if they will be required to start using the UKCA Mark for products placed on the market after the 1st January 2022.
