All ULTITEC Series are Ready for the New Era of UKCA Cert

DEREKDUCK is pleased to announce that all ULTITEC products have been approved under the most recent UK legislation for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).  We are committed to supporting the UK market and supplying safe products to our valued partners.

The UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) certificate is a new requirement for PPE goods placed on the Great Britain markets (England, Wales, and Scotland), and must bear the UKCA marking, which goes into effect on January 1 2021 During the transition period, however, you can continue to use the CE marking until December 31, 2021, in most cases.

Northern Ireland is in a different situation As long as the Northern Ireland Protocol is in effect, EU conformity markings will be used to comply with EU regulations. However, if you use the UK-based Notified Body to perform mandatory third-party conformity assessment, you must also apply a UKNI (United Kingdom Northern Ireland) marking.
