UKCA Marking

ARC Management Systems – Your ticket to CE Marking

UKCA Marking is a certification mark that indicates a product has been assessed and meets the applicable regulatory requirements within the United Kingdom.

Since 11pm on 31 December 2022, the CE mark can no longer be used for products being placed on the market in Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales). The UKCA marking applies to most products previously subject to the CE marking.
