UK CA Mark


When the UK withdrew from the EU on 31st December 2020 (BREXIT), it left behind the EU’s compliance system the CE mark. In order to ensure that products were being put onto the market with the highest of standards, the UK has adopted a UK CA Mark.



The UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) product marking is a new system, which is used for goods being placed on the market in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland). The defined product types that CE marking applied to will require the new UK CA mark to sell in the UK.



The Conformity process for products such as PPE and Medical Devices remains similar to the CE marking, but must ensure that it is correct for the UK. EU Notified bodies can no longer be used, and so UK based Approved bodies should be selected. There is also a requirement for a separate UK version of the Declaration of Conformity.



To ensure that industry had time to act on this new regime, the UK government has allowed a implementation deadline of 1st January 2022 for most products, and longer for Medical Devices. During that time product manufactured with a CE mark will be allowed to be sold.


UK & EU products

Products sold in both the UK and the EU will have to ensure product is labelled with both the CE and the UK CA Mark.



Rules for using the UK CA mark

There are rules set for the clarity and sizing of the mark, ensuring that consumers interests are maintained. 

  • You must ensure that the letters remain in proportion to the official lettering version
  • UK CA marking should be at least 5mm in height – unless otherwise required by product legislation
  • UK should be easily visible 
  • From 1st January 2023, it should be permanently attached
