UKCA Product Certification
From 1st January 2021, the UKCA mark will be the conformity assessment marking for Great Britain for most goods currently subject to CE marking including the ‘ATEX’ Directive.
Only UKCA Issued EX Certificates will be accepted from the 1st January 2022 in the UK for products that previously required Notified Body Certification.
For ‘Ex’ products (formerly ATEX) only ‘UKCA Bodies’ (the UK equivalent of an ATEX Notified body) such as ExVeritas will be able to issue the appropriate certificates needed for entry to the UK market and the Standards used will be determined by the UK List of approved Standard (BS).
‘Ex’ electrical products for Zone 0 and 1 and non-electrical products for Zone 0 will require a certificate from a government appointed UKCA Body. A Manufacturing Quality Audit will also be required from a UKCA Body such certification. Zone 1 non-electrical will require technical files to be lodged with an appointed UKCA Body such as ExVeritas.
ExVeritas have been informed officially by the UK Government that we will automatically become a UK approved body from 1st January 2021, and we will keep our 4-digit identification number (2585). There will also be a new UK database which will replace the EU’s New Approach Notified and Designated Organisations (NANDO) database.
