A revision has been made to the Personal Protective Equipment at Work (Amendment) Regulations.
All PPE entering the GB market must feature the UKCA mark from 1st January 2025, and complies with Regulation (EU) 2016/425. PPE can feature the CE marking and reversed epsilon marking until 31st December 2024. PPE featuring this logo can continue to be used providing it is suitable.
- Qualifying Northern Ireland goods can continue to be placed on the GB market bearing the CE marking or CE and UKNI markings after 1 January 2025
- CE-marked PPE that was placed on the UK or EU markets before 1 January 2025 (before the expiry of the Transition Period) and has not yet reached its end user may continue to circulate on either market until it reaches them
