In updated Guidance Published on 9 December 2022, Government has advised that until 30 June 2025, products can continue to be supplied to the GB market without any need for reassessment or re-marking if EU requirements are met (including CE marking). To affix a CE mark, any third-party conformity assessment must continue to be carried out by an EU recognised notified body during this time. In addition, products that meet NI rules (including CE marking or CE UK(NI) marking) can be supplied to the GB market. Businesses should prepare for these provisions to end on 30 June 2025.
This mirrors delays in other product areas announced earlier in the year. In a call to the Constructio Products Association and other industry colleagues, the government explained its intention to use the next 2.5 years to engage widely and scope out meaningful, sensible reform and transition plans.
The FIS, through CPA will continue liaising closely with government to monitor and review the issues at hand, identify the problems for industry and government, and ensure that industry can work with the policies put forward.
