UK updates guidance on product safety in a no-deal Brexit

Following changes to the Product Safety and Metrology etc. (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 the UK Office for Product Safety and Standards has updated its guidance on how businesses can place goods on the UK market in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

The guidance reaffirms that goods marked with the CE Mark will continue to be accepted in the UK for a limited time period and that the same safety criteria will apply. However, there is a new UK Conformity Assessed marking that may be used where conformity assessment is carried out by a UK approved body. Businesses who bring products into the UK from the EU will also become importers rather than distributors of these goods and will consequently have additional product compliance responsibilities.
