Notice for Stakeholders of Construction Products, Civil Explosives & Pyrotechnic Articles
On the 31st of October 2019, manufacturers, importers and Notified Bodies established in the UK will no longer be considered as economic operators established in the Union.
Additionally, EU27 Dealers/Distributors importing products from the UK will become Importers after Brexit. These operators will be subject to specific obligations relevant to Importers which vary from those of dealers. We remind you that in case of no-deal on the 31st of October 2019, modus operandi of your business might need to be changed to reflect this.
It is recognised that without an EU agreement, Brexit could have serious implications on economic operators. In case of no-deal, as from the UK’s withdrawal date, UK Notified Bodies would lose their status as EU Notified Bodies. Therefore, products placed on the Union market after the UK withdrawal would require a certificate under the responsibility of an EU-27 Notified Body. Economic operators need to take the necessary steps to ensure that they will hold certificates issued by an EU-27 Notified Body to demonstrate compliance for their CE marked products placed on the market as from the withdrawal date.
