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.
