UKCA explained

amtri veritas has launched a webinar explaining UKCA regulations, aimed at manufacturers who place products on the UK market. You can watch it here.

Technical File contact service for UK

Since the departure of the UK from the EU in January 2021, it has become necessary for any manufacturer not located in the UK, who places products on the UK market, to appoint a legal entity to be The Person Authorised to Compile the Technical File. We offer a service which allows clients to download an application form in order to appoint amtri veritas as this person. We will store your technical files for a 10-year period. amtri veritas then undertakes to respond to any requests from Market Authorities. Download an application form here.

Shared certification with EU notified bodies

As a UK Approved Body amtri veritas can issue UKCA certificates for machinery that has previously been placed on the EU market. We have made working agreements with a number of leading EU Notified Bodies on behalf of clients who require a UKCA certificate in addition to an existing EC Type Certificate. In many cases this process can be completed without repeating an evaluation. Manufacturers will require a UKCA Type examination certificate for their products by 1st January 2025.

Market Surveillance Regulation

The Market Surveillance Regulation 2019/1020 came into force in the EU on 16 July 2021. It introduced new duties for economic operators to cooperate with EU market surveillance authorities. Manufacturers based outside the EU may need to appoint an Authorised Representative in the EU who, while having no duties under the Machinery Directive, takes on these new duties under the Market Surveillance Regulation.

UKCA What is happening when for machinery compliance

From 1 January 2021 manufacturers of machinery that falls within the scope of the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 2008 can start to apply the UKCA mark (as well as or in place of the CE mark) to machinery that is placed on the market or put into service in the UK.

From 1 January 2025 all machinery that is placed on the market or put into service in the UK must bear the UKCA mark and the UK will have its own compliance framework fully in place – UKCA marking. If you have not yet put plans in place to implement these changes, get in touch to see how we can help.
