UKCA change for Construction Products

In December 2022 the UK government announced a change in the advice for manufacturers producing products and goods for the Construction Industry.

Legislation is still waiting to be re-issued, but based on the current advice, companies can no longer apply the UKCA Mark to a product where and EU Notified Body has been involved in type testing and/or FPC (Factory Production Control) and this applies to all AVCP (Assessment and Verification of Constancy of Performance) systems except system 4.

However, most importantly appointing an Authorised Representative is still necessary and has been a requirement for construction products as well as other goods since January 31st 2021 when the UK formally left the EU. The requirements for UKCA have not been fully imposed, but all manufacturers will be required to meet UKCA requirements by December 31st 2024.
