On the 20th of June 2022, the Government announced further changes to help simplify the application process of the UKCA marking.
This change also applies to Aerosol products that previously required the ‘reverse epsilon’ marking.
Aerosol dispensers marked with the UKCA marking can only be placed on the GB market. Northern Ireland continues to use the reversed epsilon and the EU requirements.
The UK will recognize the reversed epsilon (‘3’) until 31st December 2022. Use of the UKCA marking in place of the reversed epsilon is compulsory from 1st January 2023 for relevant aerosols on the GB market. Until 31st December 2022, the UKCA marking may be affixed to a label or a document accompanying the dispenser.
