The UK decided to leave the European Union (EU) in June 2016. This signaled the start of Brexit discussions and negotiations between the EU and UK governments that resulted in the EU/UK Trade and Cooperation agreement. One part of the agreement was the requirement for the UK to replace the European CE mark with UKCA (and UKNI for Northern Ireland) for all products under the scope of the relevant regulatory obligations.
The new UKCA arrangements went live on 1 January 2021, with a one year transition to allow manufacturers requiring UKCA for their products to gain the relevant UKCA certifications.

Measuring instruments covered by the Measuring Instruments Directive (MID) and Non-Automatic Weighing Instrument Directive (NAWI), and formally designated in the UK Measuring Instrument Regulations 2016, are within the scope of products requiring UKCAmarking by the deadline of 1 January 2022.

Alongside its EU operations NMi will soon be able to provide UKCA services through an established UK branch. This note sets out the process we will follow to support measuring instrument manufacturers to convert EU certificates to UKCA to ensure they can continue to place instruments on the UK market.
