UK Approved Bodies Clarify Key Questions on the UKCA Mark and Processes




This FIA document addresses some of the questions that have been put forward by FIA members about the UKCA mark and the processes required to affix the mark.

The questions answered in this document include the following:






  • What products can put a UKCA mark on right now and how do they do this?

  • What happens to certificates for products that were moved from a UK Notified Body to an EU Notified Body before 1 January 2021?

  • Why can’t the UK AB’s all collectively state what their process will be?

  • Is there any way that other UK ABs can informally agree to all work with the same processes on the UKCA mark?

  • How will UK ABs get through the vast number of certificates that need transferring within the remaining months?

  • What qualifies as a legitimate Factory Control Report audit, due to the ongoing pandemic these have been virtual audits, would that count?

  • If businesses cannot transfer all the products, what will happen to existing systems if the manufacturers do not UKCA their products, leaving systems unable to be maintained and needed to be fully replaced?

Information is also set out in relation to businesses who cannot transfer all the products, what will happen to existing systems if the manufacturers do not UKCA their products, leaving systems unable to be maintained and needed to be fully replaced?

The document is available here.
