Actuate UK, the voice of the engineering services sector, welcomes the Department of Business & Trade (DBT) announcement to indefinitely extend recognition of CE mark for some goods coming into Great Britain but asks for clarity on construction products. While DBT includes some products used by the engineering services, such as lifts, most of the construction products come under the scope of the Department for Levelling Up Housing and Communities (DLUHC), which has currently extended the use of CE Mark till 30 June 2025.

The alliance, which represents the whole supply chain for construction products, from manufacturers, testing and certification facilities, and contractors/users, has previously urged Government to work with industry and agree a joined-up plan on the future of construction product certification and UKCA mark, including transition arrangements, as the process so far has created confusion, anxiety and costs. Actuate UK has also warned that ambiguity on the certification process could impact products’ safety for the public. We hope that the Government’s response to the Independent Review of the Construction Product Testing Regime will soon provide answers to most of these questions.
