UKTA replaces ETA on the British market to achieve the UKCA mark
In order to introduce products onto the UK market you may need a UK Technical Assessment (UKTA). UKTA is the equivalent of ETA’s (European Technical Assessments) for non-standardized products to achieve CE Marking in Europe. ETA-Denmark offers guidance in the process towards the UKTA.
Effective from 1st January 2021, the UK Government implemented its own Conformity Assessed (UKCA) Marking scheme for products to be placed on the Great British market. The scheduled withdrawal of the CE mark from the GB market is on the 1st January 2023. As a consequence, from January 2023 manufacturers that have or want to introduce products onto the UK market may need a UK Technical Assessment (UKTA) instead of an ETA (European Technical Assessment).
A UKTA is a United Kingdom Technical Assessment which is the means for non-standardized products to achieve UKCA Marking. The UKTA is the UK equivalent of ETA’s (European Technical Assessments) for non-standardized products to achieve CE Marking in Europe.
ETA-Danmark can support and guide you through these changes for both the UK and EU markets. We have a close working relationship with BBA (British Board of Agreement) and other UKTA Assessment Bodies and can offer a smooth process towards the UKTA based on the ETA’s we have issued.
