UKCA Marking (CE Marking)

What is UKCA Marking

On 01.01.2021 the transition period Post Brexit ended indicating change of requirement from, the European CE Marking to UK Conformity Assessment Marking (UKCA) for products including doors and windows at point of installation

Note: CE Marking and UKCA will co-exist until 01.01.2023 where, all products will then be expected to have reverted solely to the UKCA Marking

*Ongoing discussions regards NI requirements – where update will be made available on confirmation of requirements

UKCA Marking demonstrates that the product meets essential characteristic levels within individual product standards (window and doors – hEN 14351-1). These are confirmed by the manufacturer via a declaration which states the characteristic values of the product manufactured. From 1st July 2013, CE marking became mandatory for all building and construction products therefore, WINDOWS AND DOORS MUST BE UKCA MARKED if they were manufactured after this date and it is the responsibility of the manufacturer* of the finished product to ensure that the now UKCA Mark is applied. *Manufacturer can be a Fabricator or an Installer depending on who supplies the complete finished product (frame and glass)
