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

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. Follow the link to find out more.
