BMF welcomes extension to CE Mark

The BMF has welcomed the Government’s decision to continue to recognise the CE Mark for construction products until June 30, 2025 to give businesses in Great Britain more time to prepare. This is a 2.5 year extension on the planned date of transition to UKCA conformity assessment certification and labelling, which had previously been set for 1 January 2023.

BMF CEO, John Newcomb, said: “It has been clear for many months that more time was required for companies to find qualified people to conduct UKCA tests and to prepare the necessary documents and packaging for their goods.  The BMF has been working with the CLC and other trade bodies to facilitate an extension.
“This welcome, overdue decision means a ‘cliff edge’ on New Year’s Eve – after which you could not have legally sold certain goods because they have not achieved UKCA status – has been avoided.”
