Brexit

As you will know the UK has left the EU and the transition period is now over.

CEM International is no longer a notified body but is now approved by the relevant UK government departments to carry out conformity assessments required for any products to be placed to the UK market. The result of our assessment will provide you with the presumption of conformity of your products which allows to you place the UKCA, or UKNI mark on your product(s).

Similar to CE marking for products destined for the EU market, UKCA/UKNI marked product means the product has been assessed to be in accordance with the relevant UK regulations and applicable designated standard(s). CEM International is UK approved body (No. 1942) for the following UK regulations:

If you sell your products to EU in addition to the UK market, please inform us immediately as your certification needs to be transferred to CTI-CEM International, our Irish operation as soon as possible and any further delay in doing so may result in difficulties exporting your product(s) to the EU market. Please be aware that your current certification issued by CEM International Ltd is no longer valid as a presumption of conformity for CE marking your product(s).

CTI-CEM is an accredited product certification body (No. 6031) and is an EU notified body (No. 2845) to carry out conformity assessment for CE marking certification under the following directives/regulations:

  • 2006/42/EC Machinery Directive
  • 2014/53/EU Radio Equipment Directive
  • Regulation (EU) 2016/425 Personal Protective Equipment
  • Construction Products Regulation 2011 (under notification process)

If this all seems a little confusing please call us, we will be happy to discuss your individual circumstances.

Due to lockdown, other safety concerns, and/or limited production of certified product, we were unable to carry out any on site assessments during 2020 and may not be able to do any in 2021, we are therefore going to carry out remote assessments based on the risk assessment for the individual circumstances of each individual client. The remote assessment will entail one of our auditors spending a day online with you via MS Teams, Skype, or other mutually agreed video conference. We will shortly be advising those affected of a proposed audit plan along with the list of documents required before the assessment.
