This includes:

  • The General Product Safety Regulations 2005
  • Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 2008
  • Electromagnetic Compatibility Regulations 2016
  • Pressure Equipment Safety Regulations 2016
  • Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 2016
  • Simple Pressure Vessels (Safety) Regulations 2016
  • Radio Equipment Regulations 2017

These timelines have been extended for 12 months to allow extra time for compliance.

Importantly, these timeline changes do not impact medical devices and IVDs which are set to have the date of application for the new UK Medical Device Regulations in July 2024. Where products are regulated under both the UK MDR and any of the above pieces of legislation, it is our understanding that products must conform to the legislation which comes into force at the earliest date.

As a reminder, BIVDA are restarting the UKCA regulatory sub-group, with our next meeting scheduled for 29 November, 11-12.30. If you would like to register, please use Eventbrite.
