NFRC responds to UKCA mark delay

by Unknown | Aug 24, 2021

Commenting on this morning’s announcement regarding the delay to the switch from the CE mark to the the UKCA mark, Chief Executive of NFRC James Talman said:

At a time when we are facing some of the worst material availability and inflation in living memory, this announcement will come as a welcome relief for manufacturers and merchants. We have been telling the government that the 1st January 2022 deadline was not feasible for some time, with many products simply unable to receive certification by the deadline. I am glad that the message has now got through. This extra time will provide much-needed breathing space for suppliers to undertake the necessary tests and acquire the correct paperwork. The government should now work with industry to ensure the supply chain is fully prepared for the new 2023 deadline, particularly smaller firms, so we do not face similar problems in the future.
