UKCA mark

In addition to already being recognized as a Notified Body for the European EMC & RED Directives, LabTest Certification is now also recognized as an Approved Body (AB 2815) under the Radio Equipment Regulations 2017 (SI 2017/1206) and the Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Regulations 2016 (SI 2016/1091) for the U.K. market.

What does that mean?

CE Marking

We can assist manufacturers with products approvals for the UKCA mark and also help with updating current CE Marking technical files to the new UKCA files.

Worried about the new UKCA process?

If products already comply with the EU Directives and you have used the EN harmonized standards before… The process is simple!

  1. Create new UKCA Technical File based on your CE marking Technical File:
    • Update the EU Directives to the UK Regulations
    • Update the EN standards to BS Standards
  2. Create new UKCA Declaration, based on the UK Regulations and BS Standards
  3. Affix UKCA Mark on the product
    • Mandatory from January 1, 2022

In situations where the EU Directive(s) required the involvement of a Notified Body from within the European Union, as registered in the NANDO database, the U.K. Regulations will also require an Approved Body located within the U.K. to be involved for similar situations.
