Brexit: UKCA-Zeichen und Konformitätserklärung

Übergangsfrist für die Anerkennung des CE-Zeichens bis Ende 2024 verlängert

Die Übergangsfrist, in der das CE-Zeichen noch im UK anerkannt wird, läuft per Jahresende 2024 aus. Es ist daher zu empfehlen, sich rechtzeitig auf das UKCA-Zeichen und die damit verbundene neue Konformitätserklärung einzustellen.

Weiter unten finden Sie zwei Muster für eine UKCA-Konformitätserklärung (für Elektro- und Elektronikgeräte sowie für Maschinen). Sie sind sehr ähnlich der EU-Erklärung, aber mit zwei Besonderheiten:

  • Anstatt etwaiger eingehaltener europäischer „Harmonisierter Normen“ müsste man „Designated Standards“ anführen (diese werden im UK offiziell kundgemacht und entsprechen in den allermeisten Fällen den harmonisierten EN-Normen)

Für andere Produkte wenden Sie sich bitte an das Enterprise Europe Network.

Declaration of Conformity

Number ...... (Unique identification of the Electrical/Electronic Equipment).

This should be a type, batch or serial number or other element allowing its identification, as appropriate. A range can be given i.e. a model number may also be suitable.

Name and address of manufacturer or authorised representative.

In the case of an authorised representative, including a copy of the mandate from the manufacturer that names the authorised representative is good practice, as the Market Surveillance Authority is likely to request this with any such DoC submission.

This declaration of conformity is issued under the sole responsibility of the manufacturer.

Statement accepting responsibility for the compliance of the product being placed on the market.

Object of declaration (identification of EEE allowing traceability).

This should clearly identify the product being placed on the market, for which this declaration is relevant. A number of the same products, with different names, can be listed in one DoC, if the components used are the same (and they are all compliant).

The object of the declaration described above is in conformity with relevant statutory requirements:

Statement of conformity with the applicable regulations, this should include a list of relevant regulations that require a DoC. It is advised that any regulations that are conformed with, but do not require a DoC should not be listed, to avoid misunderstanding or incorrect claims.

Where applicable, references to relevant designated (for use in GB)/harmonised (for use in NI) standards or technical specifications used in relation to which conformity is declared.

Additional information.

Signed for and on behalf of ...........................................................................................................

The DoC should be signed in a manner that is verifiable/auditable and that requires an authorised individual to action the signature. This could be a physical signature, or a digital signature, as long as measures are in place to ensure that only the authorised individual can apply said digital signature.

(Place and date of issue) (Name, function) (Signature)

The date must be shown on the DoC.

The DoC is a statement from a manufacturer taking responsibility for a product. As such, a suitable representative of the company must sign the declaration on completion.
