TÜV SÜD now accredited to conduct certification on the British market
UKCA for pressure equipment - and components(lifePR) (Munich, )
UKCA is the new UK certification mark and is similar to CE marking in the EU Single Market. It is issued under the supervision of the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS). Accredited organisations such as TÜV SÜD verify that manufacturers fulfil the criteria required for affixing the marking to their products. On expiry of the transition period, certification in accordance with the Pressure Equipment (Safety) Regulations and the corresponding UKCA marking will become mandatory to gain access to the GB market. This applies to all pressure equipment and pressure-equipment components placed on the GB market from 1 January 2023 onwards.
TÜV SÜD supports the manufacturers of pressure equipment and components, helping them to meet the new requirements of the British market. “We have been accredited for this scope by UKAS and can thus carry out certification in accordance with the new UK Regulations”, says Winfried Schock from the Plant Safety business line at TÜV SÜD Industrie Service GmbH. “As we are accredited for both the GB market and the EU Single Market, we can also offer all necessary certifications from a single source, thereby ensuring a highly efficient certification process.”
