UKCA CERTIFICATION OF MEDICAL DEVICES
The UK government introduced its own Conformity Assessed (UKCA) Marking programme for items sold in the GB (England, Scotland, and Wales) market on January 1, 2021. Northern Ireland has its own set of rules, which are outlined here. There is no mutual recognition of marks between the UK and EU.
What does the UKCA mark indicate?
The producer declares that a product fulfils the UK Regulations as stated in the applicable Statutory Instruments by affixing a UKCA mark to it and placing it on the UK market (SIs).
UKCA MARKING PROVISIONS AND APPROVED BODIES
The phrase “UKCA Mark” refers to any product conformity marking necessary to sell medical devices in the United Kingdom. Similarly, “Approved Body” encompasses additional appointment types such as Designated Body or Technical Assessment Body (TAB).
Unless specific arrangements, such as medical equipment, are in place, all items put on the UK market must be UKCA labelled as of January 1, 2023.
After December 31, 2021, qualified Northern Ireland goods can be put on the UK market with an EU conformity assessment marking, such as the CE marking.
- CE Mark for medical devices will be recognised in the UK until June 30, 2023, providing that UK and EU laws stay unchanged.
Products that are currently CE certified based on an EU Notified Body assessment will be needed to be examined by the UK Approved Body for UK market access from January 1, 2023.
Conformity assessment by Notified bodies operating from the UK will no longer be recognised in the EU as of January 1, 2021, and certifications issued by such bodies will no longer be valid. As a result, existing notified Bodies in the United Kingdom will cease to exist and be replaced by UK Approved Bodies with the same scope, and they will carry out the same tasks but under UK MDR 2002.
