After the UK left the European Union on December 31st, 2020, the UK has defined two different legal frameworks for Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

  • Great Britain will recognize the EU CE Marking until June 30th 2023; the new UKCA marking according to the UK MDR 2002 regulations, although already available, will be mandatory as of July 1st 2023 in GB.
  • Northern Ireland will keep in line with the EU, meaning that the CE Marking will fully apply. However, a new marking has been introduced: CE UKNI according to the EU Legal Framework but only recognized in NI.

Nevertheless, two new requirements are common for both territories:

– Non-UK manufacturers shall have a UK Responsible Person based in the UK.

– All devices placed in the UK need be registered with the MHRA. For non-UK manufacturers, this registration is to be performed by the UKRP.
