At the time of writing there is a significant chance that the UK will leave the EU on 29 March without an agreement in place, the scenario often referred to as a no-deal Brexit. Many businesses in the UK, as well as those elsewhere reliant on trade with UK customers and suppliers, have been preparing for the possibility of a no-deal Brexit, and now the UK Government has revealed the UKCA mark. This UK Conformity Assessment mark will replace the CE mark on 29 March in the event of a no-deal Brexit, but there are various rules relating to its use and, just as importantly, the continued use of CE marking in the UK after 29 March.
