- UK Notified Bodies will no longer be able to support CE marking
- UK Notified Bodies will automatically become UK Accreditation Bodies
- Products placed on the UK market will still require accreditation
- UK Manufacturers can choose CE marking or the new UK Accreditation mark.
- Products exported to EU or delivered directly from outside EU must be CE marked
- Manufacturers must transfer away from current UK Notified Body to continue CE marking
- Manufacturers must change logo to start using new UK Accreditation mark
- Manufacturers who mark without a notified body (level 4) can choose CE or UK marking
If you are currently using a UK notified Body such as BM TRADA or CATG to support CE marking for products you are placing on the market, for instance:
- Strength Graded Timber
- Plywood manufactured outside the EU
- Wood Based Panels manufactured in the UK or outside the EU
You should speak to your UK Notified Body to discuss the options available. If you do nothing you are at risk that the construction products you are currently placing on the UK or EU market may no longer be accepted after 1st November.
