UKCA and CE Labels

Are you confused about the new UKCA or CE label requirements?

What are CE and UKCA Labels?

CE Labels are used on products to show they are verified with the regulations of the European Conformity. CE Marking labels which are placed on a product is a manufacturer's confirmation that the product conforms to the necessary requirements of the relevant European health, safety and environmental protection legislation.

The UKCA(UK Conformity Assessed) marking is a new UK product marking that will be used for certain goods being placed on the UK market.

The UKCAmarking will not be recognised on the EU market, and products currently requiring a CE marking will still need a CE marking for sale in the EU.

We can help with both UKCA and CE labels. The logo can be incorporated into a variety of product labels in all shapes and sizes and we will help you to find a substrate and finish suitable for your product, to ensure that the UKCA making remains permanent and legible for the lifespan of the product.

To ensure you remain compliant, contact us now on 01536 414115 or email to discuss your requirements.

Products that need UKCA or CE marking

If your product is manufactured outside the EEA, you must ensure the product bears CE marking if your product comes under the scope of a directive requiring CE Marking although not all products sold in the EU need to bear UKCA or CE marking.
