DTG Testing and KL Certification are working together to provide a single service for placing products on both the UK and EU markets after Brexit.
From 1st January 2021, the process of placing CE marked equipment on the market in the UK and Europe will change. The UK will begin operating under a new compliance framework where the UKCA mark will be required for placing products on the UK market; but the CE mark will still be required in Europe.
There will be a transition period in place of one year where both CE and UKCA marking will still be used so that UK products already placed on the market before 1st January 2021 will not be affected.
Manufacturers who apply for certification with either organisation will have their products assessed against both UKCA and CE mark requirements. The organisations said this will give manufacturers a simple, one-stop solution to ensure all their certification requirements for the UK and Europe are met.
Alex Buchan, Strategic Technologist for the DTG, said: “DTG Testing’s collaboration with KL Certification will provide a simple and straightforward process to ensure that continued market access for manufacturers is a seamless process during the Brexit transition.”
