The end of the recognition of CE marking in GB will be pushed back from the current guidance date of 1 January 2022 to a new date of 1 January 2023.
The new deadline means that CE marked goods, that meet EU requirements, may continue to be placed on the GB market for another year.
"This is welcome news as many within our sector and within the construction industry felt insufficiently prepared for the switchover due to the narrow timescales given," said GAI technical manager, Douglas Masterson.
Please note that this issue does not impact Northern Ireland where CE marking will continue to be accepted under the Northern Ireland Protocol, in addition to the new UKNI marking.
