The use of CE marking in GB has been extended until 30 June 2025
9 December 2022
The UK Government is to continue to recognise the CE product marking in Great Britain for a further two and a half years, allowing business to use either UKCA or CE markings.
The Gov.uk site states:
“Our intention is to end recognition of the CE mark in GB on 30 June 2025. Current rules, which allow for continued recognition of the CE mark, will remain in place until legislation is laid to end recognition of the CE mark..”
Following a call with construction industry leaders, the government explained its intention to use the next two and a half years to engage widely and scope out meaningful, sensible reform and transition plans. This comes following considerable uncertainty over the last few weeks, with the Government’s initial UKCA extension announcement not including construction products.
