Also on Brexit, a reminder about the two webinars that are coming up, with the first of these next Thursday (8th October) covering the use of the CE and UKCA marks. This, and the complimentary event on the 15th that will look at the UK Border Operating Model, are organised by the Engineering and Machinery Alliance (EAMA)
UKCA and CE marks
This webinar covering the use of the UKCA mark and the phasing out of the CE mark, will be on October 8th at 11am. It will cover the essentials of the new guidance issued by government and invite firms to raise questions. A reminder that the key points regarding the UKCA and CE marks can be summarised in this way:
- Little changes on 1st January 2021 in terms of CE marking as there is (for want of a better term) a transition period.
- Introducing the UKCA mark is a firm policy decision and will happen regardless of whether we get a free trade deal with the EU or not.
- Firms should be looking over the coming weeks as how they will transition to UKCA mark - they should not make the mistake of ignoring this issue into 2021.

Border Operating Model
