UKCA technical file requirement and information required for declaration of conformity of EU and UK regulation
Sep 26, 2022

It is not enough to only affix the UKCA logo to the products exported to the UK, and the UKCA certification has very high requirements for technical documents.

Technical file requirements include:

1. Record keeping:The manufacturer or its authorised representative (where permitted by law) must keep documentation that certifies that the product complies with regulatory requirements. After the product is placed on the market, it must be kept for 10 years.

1.    The documents retained will depend on the specific regulations related to the product, but general records must be kept of: how the product was designed and manufactured, how it was demonstrated that the product complies with the relevant requirements, the address of the manufacturer and any storage facilities.

2.    UK market surveillance or law enforcement agencies may request this information at any time to check that a product complies with statutory requirements.

2. UK Declaration of Conformity (UK DoC):The UK DoC is a document that must be drafted for most compliant products bearing the UKCA mark.

In the document, the manufacturer or his UK authorised representative (where permitted by law) shall:

1.    A statement that the product complies with the relevant statutory requirements applicable to the particular product;

2.    ensure that the name and address of the manufacturer (or UK authorised representative) are on the document, as well as            information about the product and the conformity assessment body (if relevant);

3.    Manufacturers are required to provide the UK DoC to market surveillance agencies upon request.

The information required for the Declaration of Conformity will be essentially the same as that required for the current EU Declaration of Conformity and may vary depending on the applicable regulations , but should generally include:

  •       Product serial number, model number or model identification;
  •       Statement (full responsibility for the compliance of the product);
  •       Details of the body authorised to carry out the conformity assessment procedure (if applicable);
  •       The relevant regulations that the product complies with;
  •       The name and signature of the signatory to the UKCA DoC 
  •       The date the statement was issued;
  •       Supplementary Information (if applicable).
  •       In addition, it is necessary to list: relevant UK regulations, not EU regulations; UK specified standards (BS), not standards referenced in the Official Journal of the European Union.
