CE marking post Brexit

27 October, 2017

BCAS is calling on the UK government to keep the CE mark as it leaves the EU. Vanda Jones, executive director for BCAS, said: “The CE mark plays a crucial role in ensuring that products flow freely across Europe and that they meet safety, quality and environment laws. “


The society has signed a joint paper with a number of other trade associations representing industry. Called ‘CE marking: good for business and consumers’, it points out that “SMEs exporting into the EU don’t want to be crippled by divergent regulations and manufacturers operating globally want the most efficient system so they can innovate and bring great value goods to market. CE marking has made this happen and has had a positive impact on consumer safety, free trade and the sustainability of products.

“Manufacturers do not support a separate UK marking scheme as it will make things more expensive and time consuming to make and could risk having to follow one set of rules for Europe and another for the UK. The results of this will be less choice for consumers and more expensive products on the shelves.”

Jones continued: “What is becoming increasingly clear is that manufacturers across all industries need Trade Associations to represent them and make sure that their voice is heard. It is more important than ever that the compressed air industry talks with a unified voice. BCAS represents compressed air manufacturers, suppliers and end users.”
