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.

This measure will allow completed conformity assessment activities for CE marking undertaken before the end of 2022 to be valid for manufacturers to use as a basis for UKCA, for the duration of the certificate issued or until 31 December 2027 (whichever is shorter). It will also allow ongoing activities related to that completed conformity assessment activity (e.g. annual inspections) to continue for the duration of the certificate issued or until 31 December 2027 (whichever is shorter).
The measure will also extend current legislation allowing importer information and the Great Britain conformity marking (generally UKCA) to be added to products using a label or accompanying document, rather than being physically marked on the product itself, until 31 December 2025.
