UKCA MARKINGS UPDATE

UKCA Logo

The UKCA marking will become mandatory for most goods which previously used the CE markings if they are first placed on the market in Great Britain after 31 December 2022

The UK Government wants to make it easier for businesses to comply with the changes, so we will introduce four measures to further support businesses adopting UKCA. 

These measures are as follows: 

1. Government will reduce re-testing costs for UKCA certification by allowing certificates provided by EU (European Union) conformity assessment bodies (CABs) issued before the end of this year to be used as a basis for UKCA marking certification (including a specific arrangement for construction products, via the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities). This will prevent duplication and immediately increased costs for businesses. Resuming, CE testing can also be converted to UKCA testing which means lower costs,

2. Government will make clear there is no need to re-test existing imported stock, as these products will be considered already placed on the Great Britain (GB) market. This will prevent the costly and unnecessary re-labelling of existing stock for businesses. 

3. Government will make clear that spare parts that repair or replace goods already on the GB market can meet the same requirements as the goods that they repair or replace. This will allow products and goods requiring spare parts to continue to be maintained. 

4. Government will allow the UKCA marking and importer details to be added to products using a sticky label or on an accompanying document until 31 December 2025. This will allow business to adjust their product design to accommodate marking changes at a convenient and cost-effective time. 

The UK Government also intends to lay secondary legislation before the end of the calendar year to give effect to the changes for labelling and testing.

This topic is probably one of the more abstract hidden and unknown topics in our industry; the vague government regulations and guidelines and the secrecy and inaccessibility of the testing labs are making it hard for everyone to understand what actually should be labeled and how.

Shipping and Fulfillment is another topic that small to large game publishers cannot wrap their heads around, nor can they fully master it. For a first-time creator and an individual to be able to execute this part all by themselves without issues is nearly an impossible task. Still, with the correct information, the creator can stand a chance. This course will discuss different shipping terms, shipping methods, how Fulfillment works, average prices, and the logic behind these prices. This topic is still under construction, but if you are interested in already starting to learn a bit, you can refer to our YouTube discussion here (a video on YouTube that will launch soon)
