UK Businesses given an additional 2 years to apply for new Product Safety Marking

Tuesday, December 6th, 2022

Businesses will be given an additional 2 years to apply new product safety marking, giving thousands of businesses the freedom to focus on growth, Business Secretary Grant Shapps has announced on 14th November.

  • Government to continue to recognise the CE product marking in Great Britain for a further 2 years, allowing business to use either UKCA or CE markings
  • move will cut costs for businesses and remove potential disruption
  • future product marking plans to be reviewed to minimise costs and burdens for business in the longer term

The UK Conformity Assessed (UKCA) marking has been introduced as part of the UK’s own robust regulatory framework. It shows that products comply with our product safety regulations which are designed to protect consumers.

However, given the difficult economic conditions created by post-pandemic shifts in demand and supply, alongside Putin’s war in Ukraine and the associated high energy prices, the government does not want to burden business with the requirement to meet the original (31 December 2022) deadline.

CompEx Celebrates 25th Anniversary – Safety in Hazardous Environments

 

The CompEx scheme celebrated its 25th anniversary on the 28th May 2018 and celebrated the huge impact it has had on improved safety in the workplace during that time.

 

CompEx Celebrates 25th Anniversary – The CompEx Scheme came about as a direct result of Lord Cullen’s 13-month investigation into the Piper Alpha tragedy and led to 106 recommendations that transformed the North Sea oil and gas industry into a global leader in safety in these hazardous environments.

The CompEx scheme was launched in 1993 and the phenomenal success of the scheme has been marked with many milestones along the way, with Aberdeen College subsidiary ASET the first commercial centre in 1994, ten years later it was celebrating the 10,000 candidate certificated for Gas & Vapour and in 2010 that number had risen to 25,000. Electronic online examinations were introduced in 2013 and JT Limited took over ownership of the scheme from EEMUA a year later in 2014.
