UKCA marking for Construction Products Regulation
Product marking is a 'passport to trade' and helps construction product manufacturers access markets. From 1 January 2021 BM TRADA is able to offer the UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) mark to manufacturers of construction products. This a new product mark applicable to goods being placed on the market in in England, Wales and Scotland (Great Britain). In addition to this, we are able to provide provide product marking to the separate product mark applicable to the Northern Ireland market (the UKNI mark).
These changes have come about as a result of the end of transition period of the UK leaving the European Union.
The UKCA marking construction products certification scheme covers the following products:
Metal web beams
Visual strength grading
Machinery strength grading
Organizations must prepare for the end of recognition of the CE mark in Great Britain and use the UKCA mark by 1 January 2022.
