On 9th December the DLUHC website guidance was finally updated to confirm that the government intention is now to end recognition of the CE mark in GB on 30 June 2025 and not the previously advised 31/12/2022. They also confirmed that the previous BASA opinion that current rules, which allow for continued recognition of the CE mark, will remain in place until legislation is laid to end recognition of the CE mark.
DLUHC had previously published guidance to help businesses to prepare for EU exit by providing practical information about placing construction products on the GB market from 1 January 2021. This updated guidance replaces this and provides information about further changes to requirements from 30 June 2025. See also guidance on placing goods on the NI market.
