The UKCA marking is the product marking used for products being placed on the market in Great Britain (England, Scotland, and Wales).

The UKCA marking applies to most products previously subject to the CE marking. The technical requirements that must be met for the UKCA marking will depend on the product-specific legislation. Efectis UK/Ireland, as an Approved Body, can affix the UKCA marking to products that fall under the Construction Products Regulation 2020 No. 1359 CPR for the Great Britain market.

Extension of Scope

Efectis UK / Ireland, following the successful completion of certification accreditation to ISO 17065 from UKAS at the end of 2021, has worked tirelessly to increase the scope of accreditation and respond to customer needs. Efectis UK / Ireland is aiming at extending its scope again, by adding a group of thermal insulation product standards, which will offer our client base undisrupted access to GB market from 1 January 2023 (this date remains at the day of writing this article). The full list is yet to be confirmed by UKAS (the sole National Accreditation Body for the UK).
