TTA recently held a UKCA marking seminar at its HQ in Stone, hosted by Lorna Williams – Executive Officer and General Secretary of BASA, and a recognised authority on this topic. The seminar was extremely helpful and answered many of the queries of TTA members.
Industry is increasingly concerned about the implications of the new UKCA marking system introduced as a result of Brexit and the CLC has recently written to government warning that many construction products may struggle to meet the intended deadline for obtaining the UKCA mark (1 January 2023). The new system means that in order to be sold in Great Britain, products will be required to carry the UKCA mark. To help deal with the disruption, the CLC is calling for a review of current testing and certification capacity, new certification bodies to be brought on board, and the subcontracting of testing and certification.
TTA members can view the slides from the seminar in the Brexit section of the Members’ Area on TTA’s website.
