What is CE Marking? The UKCA (United Kingdom Conformity Assessment) mark is the new UK product mark.
UKCA marking is mandatory by law for glasses that are being used in licenced establishments to sell by measurements. This ensures the measure being served complies with UK directives. Festival Glass has been accredited to incorporate this UKCA marking process within our professional printing services and therefore be can offer UKCA marking across a wide range of drinking glassware.
As the UK has now left the EU, the capacity verification mark will change from a CE mark to a UKCA mark for the UK market, both marks mean the same thing. All new production of capacity verified glasses will have a UKCA mark from the 1st of January. In the coming months you may continue to receive CE stock as existing stocks sell through, this will then change to UKCA. The testing and verification regime remains the same. CE marked glassware can continue to be used in the UK marketplace for the life of the product.
