UK Plans to Introduce Symbol to Replace CE Marking in Case of a “No Deal” Brexit

- In case of a “no deal” Brexit, the UK government announced, on 2 February 2019, that it will introduce its own marking for conformity assessment, used to certify household products such as kettles or lightbulbs, electronics such as televisions, smartphones as well as toys. The new symbol “UKCA” which stands for “UK Conformity Assessed” is still subject to UK parliamentary approval. If approved, the new symbol (the standard form of the UKCA marking) will replace the CE product marking used in the EU.
