Finch to speak on UKCA Marking webinar hosted by the BFPA

On Thursday 27th May Finch’s Howard Wheeler will be speaking on a webinar, “Understanding and using the new UKCA & UKNI marks”, hosted by the British Fluid Power Association (BFPA). This is also in conjunction with the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy. Charlotte Dickin, Trade and Investment Negotiations (Goods) BEIS, will also be speaking.

The UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) marking is a new UK product marking that is used for goods being placed on the market in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland).

It covers most goods that previously required the CE marking – but not all. The UKCA marking alone cannot be used for goods placed on the Northern Ireland market, which will require either the EU CE marking or UKNI + CE marking depending on whether you use an EU or UK conformity assessment body.

As a manufacturer or a distributor of products at home or abroad, it is now a legal requirement that companies know when and how to apply these new marks. Also, when and where the old EU CE Mark still applies. This webinar seeks to clarify this situation and provide simple answers to these all-important questions.

This webinar has been specifically requested by BFPA members and will cover; a general overview of all three Marks, a closer look at exporting to and importing from Northern Ireland and will conclude with an open Q&A session with a panel of experts.

The webinar is aimed at managers and directors in small to medium enterprise companies and will be free of charge to those who register. The webinar is running between 11:30 am and 12:30 pm on Thursday 27th May 2021.
