Door Industry Journal - Summer 2018

Also online at: Industry News on a transitional arrangement to end on 31 December 2020, which would delay any major changes until after that date. Question: What will happen to UK notified bodies post Brexit? Answer: UK notified bodies will lose that status from the withdrawal date The Commission issued a paper on 22 January outlining the position. Unless there is a transitional arrangement, products placed on the EU-27 market after 29 March 2019 will not be able to rely on a UK-based notified body to perform any required conformity assessment tasks. UK manufacturers are advised to discuss this situation with their UK notified body in the first instance. It will be possible for notified bodies based in the EU-27 to sub-contract certain work to bodies (including their own subsidiaries) based in the UK after the withdrawal date, provided that the ultimate responsibility remains with the notified body established in the EU-27.
