I want to import a PPE product into Great Britain - what do I need to do?

Up until 31 December 2021 - If the product is already CE marked then you shall ensure you have the necessary EU declaration of Conformity – you may wish to confirm its validity by submitting to the relevant Notified Body or by reviewing the Type-examination certificate (and Approval Decision if applicable). Beyond this date, the product will require ‘UKCA’ marking.

If the product is already UKCA marked then you shall ensure you have the necessary UKCA Declaration of Conformity – you may wish to confirm its validity by submitting to the relevant Approved Body or by reviewing the Type-examination certificate (and Approval Decision if applicable).

If the product is not CE marked or UKCA marked, and is not exclusively for minimal risks (i.e. is Cat II or III), then the product is required to have type-examination (Module B) as a minimum. Products for environments/uses with very serious consequences such as death or irreversible damage to health also require an Approval Decision via assessment of production items (Module C2) or production control (Module D).

We may offer a joint service for CE and UKCA marking – which will give rights to place goods on the market of the EU (under the ‘CE’) and Great Britain (England, Scotland, Wales) (under the ‘UKCA’ mark – or ‘CE’ until 01 January 2022).

Please contact our Certification department for more information.
