Having visited quite a few EBME departments recently, I wanted to make everyone aware of the new UKCA mark that will come into force on the 1st January 2022.
Medical devices maybe different, but certainly any test equipment that an EBME is looking to buy next year must confirm to the new mark.
The following is taken from the UK Gov site that talks about the UKCA mark.UKCA marking has become mandatory following the end of the Brexit transition period although until 1 January 2022 the CE mark is accepted as a valid alternative. The scope and procedures of the UKCA scheme will initially follow those for CE marking, but after 31 December 2020 the two schemes may diverge.
More information can be found at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/using-the-ukca-marking
and other places on the Web.
If you are looking to buy, or plan to buy, its worth checking.
