UKCA Mark Guidance - Gas Appliances
The Transition Period for the UK leaving the European Union has ended, meaning that some gas appliance products placed on the UK market (herein covering England, Wales and Scotland only*) from UK Manufacturers or from Manufacturers outside of the UK require a UKCA mark, where previously a CE mark was applicable. (*Note the position in relation to N. Ireland remains under discussion between HM Government and EU and at the time of writing has not been clarified).
The recently issued UK government advice on the transition has confirmed that UK Notified Bodies will immediately transition to Approval Bodies at the end of 2020 capable of issue of UKCA Certificates. A link to respective government advice is given here:
