Webinar: Do you use CE Markings?

The UK Government has recently announced the details of the UKCA Mark – the new guidance explains how to use the UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) marking. The UKCA marking is a new UK product marking that will be used for goods being placed on the market in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland). This will replace most goods which previously required the CE marking.

The process for the UKCA Mark is extensive and many members have questions so the FSPA has arranged for the Head of Business Engagement, Office for Product Safety and Standards to hold a virtual meeting with FSPA members in relation to technical questions, which will take place on Tuesday 6th October 2020.  Email Jane Montgomery below for more details.
