Efectis UK/Ireland and Efectis Era Avrasya recently held a joint webinar explaining the purpose of and need for UKCA marking in Great Britain.
The webinar covered the requirements for UKCA marking under the Construction Products Regulation covering resistance to fire, reaction to fire and external fire performance.
UKCA marking results from the UK leaving the European Union and will be a requirement to place certain products on the market in Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales). Northern Ireland is a separate case due to the Northern Ireland Protocol. A CE mark can still be applied to products entering Northern Ireland. Alternatively, products that do not have a CE mark can have the UK(NI) mark attached.
The team at Efectis UK/Ireland looks forward to working alongside its counterparts in the EU so as to provide its clients with both CE and UKCA marking.
