What is a UK Responsible Person?

Comply Express has introduced a ‘UK Responsible Person’ (UK RP) service to customers outside of the UK, licencing its Comply Express Ltd name and UK office contact details for use as part of a service to act on behalf of the client company located outside of the UK.

Products to be placed on the UK market are required to meet the new UK regulatory requirements and be labelled with the UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) mark. The UKCA mark is the new certification mark that is required to be affixed to products that fall under the scope of the relevant UK Statutory Instruments. These requirements are similar in principal to the CE marking requirements previously used and well known by many businesses in the EU, UK and around the globe.

The CE mark may still be used on products that come under the self-certification category for CE marking up until 1st January 2023 – except for products that are in a category where they need to go through a third-party certification process, in which case the UKCA mark must be affixed to such products now – they should have been certified by a registered UK Approved Body already. The majority of products on the market fall into the self-certification category so may still utilise the CE mark, but if you are unsure, we can advise through our consultancy services.

We advise customers with products in the ‘self-certification’ category to fulfil the UKCA marking requirements now and to prepare the related UKCA declaration of conformity listing the applicable UK product regulations. A UK address (such as provided through our UK RP service) should be on the product or packaging. We can assist with UKCA marking as an additional service if required.

Whether you have 1, 100 or 1000+ products / product variants to place on the UK market, we can assist, and we can be your UK Responsible Person service.
