Looking at the CE marking certification and how it’ll affect UK clients following the fallout of Brexit, TÜV SÜD has secured accreditation from DANAK (the Danish accreditation authority).

This is part of TÜV SÜD’s strategy: the CE certification is essential and as such, concerns over it being refused, as a result of the messy Brexit situation, should be put to rest, in this case by TÜV SÜD, through this recent accreditation. 

The scope of the accreditation is identical to that already held by the UK notified body TÜV SÜD BABT, which is accredited by UKAS for four EU directives (marine equipment, radio equipment, EMC, machinery). TÜV SÜD’s certification processes through both organisations are identical, reducing complications in procuring the CE mark. Even if the UK leaves the European Union without a deal, this new accreditation enables TÜV SÜD to issue dual certifications for both CE and UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) marking. 

Nathan Emery, certification body manager at TÜV SÜD, asserts: “During the uncertainty of Brexit, it was imperative that we got all of our ducks in a row and covered every possible scenario. As we are a UK notified body, our clients rely on us to maintain thousands of CE marking certifications. Now that the TÜV SÜD UK business has achieved notified body status outside of the UK, clients’ CE marking status will not change, and they can continue to seamlessly distribute products within the EU after Brexit.”
