A Brief Introduction to Machinery CE Marking, UKCA Marking and post-Brexit

Our FREE introductory webinar on European CE Marking, UKCA Marking and post-Brexit is now available to view ‘on demand’.

This one-hour presentation, with accompanying Q&A segment, offers practical advice when conformity assessment marks should be applied to machinery, and for what territory (i.e., EU, Great Britain, and Northern Ireland).

The webinar also explains the difference between Declarations of Conformity and Incorporation, the requirements for a Technical file, and the Essential Requirements of the Directive and UK Regulations.

Topics covered include:

  • Markings required on machinery (CE, UKCA, UKNI, etc.).
  • When the UKCA mark must be applied.
  • Use of Standards.
  • How to comply to UKCA, if already compliant to CE.
  • Changes to Declarations.
  • Changes to Manufacturers Plates.
  • Requirement for an Authorised Representative, if supplying EU or Northern Ireland from UK.
