As a result of Brexit, there is a new UKCA marking for medical devices: Discussion paper on the application of the UKCA marking on medical devices identified with GS1 standards.
The new regulations will come into effect by July 2023 at the latest and CE marking recognition in the UK will end.
Find out more about the NHS's Scan4Safety program.
In 2014, the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) mandated that all NHS Trusts apply the GS1 standards. This means that all their suppliers must become GS1 compliant. The deadline for compliance is 2019/20.
