Everything you need to know about post-Brexit product approval regulations for construction products

As the dust settles on the UK’s Brexit negotiations, it is only now that the full implications of our break from Europe are beginning to be felt in the market. In the construction industry, the big topic right now is product standards, and, at Leviat, we are again leading the way with new approval markings across our market-leading range of Ancon stainless steel support systems.

CE, UKCA and CE UKNI marking from Leviat

From January 1st 2021, the UK will recognise both the EU CE marking approvals, for a time limited period, and the new UK based approval system, which will be known as the UKCA mark. The EU will only recognise CE marking by EU notified bodies as proof of efficacy moving forwards. Leviat has been working closely with both EU notified and UK approved bodies to ensure compliance is achieved at the earliest possible opportunity and we can confirm that we have obtained all relevant certification.
