DTG Testing and KL Certification join forces to provide a single certification service for placing products on the market post-Brexit


DTG Testing and KL Certification have combined their expertise to provide a single service for placing products on both the UK and EU markets after Brexit.

Placing CE marked equipment on the market in the UK and Europe after Brexit will change from 1st January 2021. At this point the UK will begin operating under a new compliance framework where the UKCA mark will be required for placing products on the UK market; the CE mark will still be required in Europe.

There will be a transition period in place for 1 year where both CE and UKCA marking can be used in the UK meaning products already placed on the market before 1st January 2021 will not be affected.

By applying for product certification with either organisation, DTG Testing and KL Certification will work together to ensure products are assessed against both UKCA and CE mark requirements. This will give manufacturers a simple, one-stop solution to ensure all their certification requirements for the UK and Europe are met.

DTG Testing is a Notified Body and will become a UK Approved Body from 1st January 2021. Based in London, it has expertise in Radio Equipment Directive (RED) certification of consumer electronics products, providing market access solutions across a range of categories including TV, radio, mobile, and satellite. To find out more, see here:

KL Certification GmbH is a Notified Body under the Radio Equipment Directive and soon will be assigned as a Recognized Certification Body for Japan, a Telecommunication Certification Body for the USA and Foreign Certification Body for Canada, offering  fast and reliable market access for our customers.

Alex Buchan, Strategic Technologist at the DTG, said:

“DTG Testing’s collaboration with KL Certification will provide a simple and straightforward process to ensure that continued market access for manufacturers is a seamless process during the Brexit transition.”

Oliver Kneip, Managing Director of KL Certification GmbH said:

“Efficient and reliable services for our customers even during uncertain times is our passion and the goal of our work.“
