UKCA/UKNI marking to replace CE marking in UK

The use of the EU CE mark in the United Kingdom is being phased out starting from January 2021 and being replaced by the UKCA/UKNI mark for Great Britain and Northern Ireland respectively. You need to use a conformity marking if you are placing certain goods on the market to show they meet the relevant rules. After 1 January 2022 products will require UKCA or UKNI marking.
