Help with UKCA marking from the Stone Federation


The Stone Federation has issued guidance for its members on using the UKCA mark that is replacing the CE mark.

Although the government has put the deadline for changing over from CE Marking to the post-Brexit UKCA Marking (UK(NI) in Northern Ireland) back a year to January 2023 (read about that here), it says that is the final deadline and companies should be preparing for the changeover.

To help its members, Stone Federation Great Britain has produced a simple guide to explain what the change means to stone companies - which is not much, as the British Standards Institution (BSI) remains part of CEN, which produces the standards for CE Marking. Initially, at least, UKCA will be exactly the same as CE and for most of the stone industry the changeover will simply involve a new logo.

If you are not a member of the Stone Federation, the Construction Leadership Council has produced a general guide on the CE/UKCA changeover that can be downloaded here.
