CPA welcomes announcement on UKCA Marking

UKCA

Association welcomes statement from DLUHC extending recognition of CE Marking until 30 June 2025

THE Construction Products Association has welcomed the statement from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) announcing the government will extend recognition of CE Marking for construction products until 30 June 2025.

The announcement does not delay the implementation of the UKCA Mark for construction products placed on the GB market but does prolong the period of recognition of the CE Mark. Use of the UKCA Mark has been permitted for some time now and it will continue to be available for use by the UK industry.

Peter Caplehorne, chief executive of the CPA, said: ‘We have been working for some time to bring about certainty for the marketplace and clarity involving the many interrelated issues that surround the shift to UKCA Marking.

‘We are pleased to have avoided the potentially catastrophic situation that was unfolding. Still, while this avoids a potential cliff edge, there are many business-critical problems that need to be resolved.

‘We are keen to continue engaging closely with government and industry to resolve these as quickly as possible, particularly the practical and commercial factors that are needed to ensure smooth market conditions.

‘Until then, manufacturers can now get back to supporting the UK construction industry and the urgent need to grow the economy.’
