Products in scope can range from machinery goods and electronic devices to recreational craft, lifts, pressure equipment, and personal protective equipment among other product types covered by the European conformity marking (CE mark in most cases but also reversed epsilon). Such products are included within, but are not limited to, the following HS codes: 36, 39, 42, 63, 64, 65, 70, 73, 76, 84, 85, 86, 87, 88, 89, 90, 91, 94, 95, 96. More detail on product coverage can be found in the relevant legislation outlined in annex A of the document accompanying this notification.
The Product Safety and Metrology (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2021.
This measure extends the UK's acceptance of products meeting EU requirements and marking for a further year (until 1 January 2023), for most goods covered by the new UK marking and conformity assessment regime (the UKCA marking) which are being placed on the market in Great Britain (separate rules apply in Northern Ireland). This measure also extends the time in which the UKCA marking itself can be affixed using a label or accompanying document, rather than being placed directly on the product itself, by a further 12 months (until 1 January 2024).
