UKCA Certification

GET IN TOUCH

As a UK Notified Body, Eurofins CML will automatically become a UK Approved Body from the 1st January 2021. From this date, Eurofins CML will be able to provide the UKCA equivalent services to those currently provided as a Notified Body for the ATEX Directive. CML B.V., our Dutch Notified Body, is unaffected by the changes and will continue to provide services as a Notified Body for the ATEX Directive within the EU.

Eurofins CML (UK Notified Body) certificate holders

If you currently have the following provided by Eurofins CML then please read this section:
• EU-Type Examination certificate
• Quality Assurance Notification (QAN)
• Storage of Technical File

For products with an EU-Type Examination certificate issued by a UK Notified Body such as Eurofins CML, and does not have an equivalent EU-Type Examination certificate issued by a non-UK Notified Body such as CML B.V., the UKCA mark is mandatory if being placed on the market in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland) from the 1st January 2021. A Quality Assurance Notification (QAN) issued by a UK Approved Body will also be required. If the same product is to be placed on the EU market after the 1st January 2021 then you need to take action now as you will need an EU-Type Examination certificate and Quality Assurance Notification (QAN) issued by a non-UK Notified Body, such as CML B.V..

For manufacturers with a Quality Assurance Notification (QAN) issued by a UK Notified Body such as Eurofins CML, and do not have an equivalent Quality Assurance Notification (QAN) issued by a non-UK Notified Body such as CML B.V., any products manufactured under that Quality Assurance Notification (QAN) that are being placed on the market in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland) from the 1st January 2021 are required to have a UK Approved Body Type Examination certificate and carry the UKCA mark. If the same product is to be placed on the EU market after the 1st January 2021 then you need to take action now as you will need an EU-Type Examination certificate and Quality Assurance Notification (QAN) issued by a non-UK Notified Body, such as CML B.V..

Technical files are typically submitted for storage to a Notified Body at the time of the product being placed on the market and the product is a single production item. In this case, no action is required to be taken. If the product is subject to serial production, and a technical file has been submitted for storage at a Notified Body, the following considerations will have to be made with regards to any products placed on the market after the 1st January 2021.

For products with a technical file currently stored by a UK Notified Body, and do not have an equivalent storage at a non-UK Notified Body, the UKCA mark is mandatory if being placed on the market in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland) from the 1st January 2021. If the same product is to be placed on the EU market after the 1st January 2021 then action needs to be taken now as a technical file will be required to be stored at a non-UK Notified Body, such as Eurofins CML B.V..
