EEMUA notes today’s announcement (1 August 2023) from the UK Government regarding continued acceptance of CE marking across England, Wales and Scotland, indefinitely, beyond December 2024.

For our Members, the users of engineering equipment, this removes a considerable degree of uncertainty about the future availability and relative cost of critical items, and we broadly welcome this move, although there needs to be a route for UK users to access relevant decision makers. We recognise manufacturers and certification bodies will have different views.

EEMUA will continue to engage with the Department of Business and Trade and other industry bodies on this topic.

The Government announcement is available here.
