Understanding the basics and key terms surrounding the UKCA
Thursday 28 January 2021
12:00 - 13:00 GMT
The UKCA (UK Conformity Assessment) mark is the new UK product marking that is required for certain products being placed on the market in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland). It covers most products that previously required the CE marking.
Join us as we discuss some of the new terms and definitions that relate to UKCA marking.
Importer, distributor, accreditation, conformity…the list goes on. Our experts will break down what these terms mean in the context of UKCA and what this means for you when placing products on the market.
BSI is an approved body for UKCA, we can work with you on the required conformity assessment procedures that will allow you to affix the UKCA marking. Once you have attended this webinar you should be able to feel more confident about UKCA marking. Of course you’ll also be able to ask our experts any questions you may have.
*UKCA for Medical Devices and IVDs are not covered in this webinar as timescales are different. For more info on this, please visit this page.
