Jurisdiction: Great Britain

CE marking will continue to be accepted on the market in Great Britain in most cases until 31st December 2024. Manufacturers of products placed on the market before 31st December 2024 do not require a Great Britain conformity assessment certificate if the product has a valid EU conformity assessment certificate. This transitional measure ceases to have effect following the expiry of the EU conformity assessment certificate or on 31st December 2027.

Economic operators that have fulfilled certain EU obligations, in accordance with regulation 2A of the 2018 Regulations, are considered to have complied with GB obligations. This transitional measure will expire on 31st December 2024.

A series of further transitional provisions are also made, which vary slightly amongst the 16 pieces amended.
