UKCA Mark

From the 1st January 2021, the UKCA mark becomes the new product conformity mark used for goods being placed on the market in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland). It is a legal requirement for most electronic products placed on the UK market and covers most goods which previously required CE marking. For the Northern Ireland market, the CE marking or UKNI marking is required.

UKCA and CE marking processes involves both technical and administrative requirements to be met as set out in the relevant directives, before a product is placed on the market and on an on-going basis as well.

We can undertake testing to the UK version of European EMC and Radio standards (BS EN) and support you to ensure that your products are compliant for sale on the UK market whether they have been manufactured in the UK or imported.

Technical Requirements

Designated standards exist for all regulations and are covered in the UK Designated Standards. Using designated standards to assess products is the most commonly used route for manufacturers and we are able to help you through the UKCA Marking process including UKAS accredited testing at our Laboratory.

RN Electronics can help: Assist you in applying the UKCA Marking to a number of product variations, without having to test them all. Provide a Gap analysis service which involves taking your current test reports and reviewing them against the latest requirement, to provide a summary report, highlighting any different/missing tests that you would need to perform, helping you maintain on-going compliance.

Administrative Requirements

In addition to meeting the technical requirements of a directive, there are also administrative requirements that need to be met.

Including the collation of Technical Documentation and the creating and signing a Declaration of Conformity (DoC); the legal statement that the product meet the requirements of the UK Regulations; Electromagnetic Compatibility Regulations 2016, Radio Equipment Regulations 2017 and Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 2016.

Like the equivalent EU Directives (EMCD, RED & LVD) it is allowable to self-declare compliance to these regulations, although for Radio standards only when the manufacturer has applied the UK designated standards.
