The withdrawal of the UK from the European Union or “Brexit” has been a turbulent journey for both sides, concluding on December 31, 2020, with the end of the “transition period” during which negotiations have taken place on new mutual trading arrangements. One of the consequences of Brexit is that the familiar “CE” marking for products is no longer relevant or sufficient for goods sold in the UK. A new marking needs to be applied by manufacturers who wish to continue sales into the UK – it was the fifth largest economy in the world in 2019 and will continue to be a major market in the future.
