UKCA Marking - Update
ALLMI recently informed its members of a delay to the phasing in of UKCA marking, which commenced on 1st January 2021. The Government’s 12-month postponement to various stages of the process now means that the following timeframes will apply:
- 1st January 2021 to 1st January 2023: CE marking can still be used.
- From 1st January 2023: a product bearing the CE marking will still be valid for sale in the UK, so long as it is also UKCA marked.
- Until 1st January 2024: option to affix the UKCA marking via a label affixed to the product or an accompanying document.
- From 1st January 2024: UKCA marking must be affixed directly to the product.
ALLMI is in the process of producing a Guidance Note covering the implications of UKCA marking for the lorry loader industry. Look out for future updates and please contact ALLMI, should you have any queries in relation to this topic.
