Updated: March 2021.
Following ‘Brexit’ on 31 December 2020, the British Government has replaced CE (European Conformity) marking with the UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) marking to show compliance with UK ‘designated standards’.
Whilst UK and European Union standards remain the same, it is likely that our products will carry both UKCA and CE markings to show that they are compliant with the relevant standards in both markets. When the UK and EU standards diverge, a product must only carry the appropriate marking. One further element of complication is for products sold in Northern Ireland, where they will still be required to carry the CE marking (or UKNI marking).
In most cases, we are permitted to continue using CE marking until 1 January 2022. HAG is currently working with its suppliers, testing partners and the Door & Hardware Federation (DHF) to ensure that all our products will be permitted to carry the UKCA marking from 1 January 2022.

To comply with the European Directive, doors installed in member states of the EU are required to carry the CE marking to show that they have been tested to the appropriate standards.
The CPD 89/106/EEC is one of the New Approach Directives. This means its aim is to allow the free movement of construction products across Europe. The CPD is a product-specific set of standard so rather than a generic risk assessment based standard applying to all machinery, each product has its own set of specific standards. Out of the 21 New Approach Directives that call for CE marking, 5 apply to roller shutters. To comply with a New Approach Directive you must satisfy the “essential requirements” of the directive. Third party testing, standards and risk assessments are methods by which compliance is achieved.
