United Kingdom Authorities’ announcement: Deadline extended – All goods which previously required the CE marking will not need to use the UKCA marking until 1 January 2023

Businesses are encouraged to be ready for full implementation of the new United Kingdom regime as soon as possible.
However, United Kingdom authorities announced on 24 August 2021 that, in order to allow businesses time to adjust, CE marked construction products that meet European Union requirements (where these match United Kingdom requirements) can continue to be placed on the market of Great Britain until 1 January 2023, insofar that European Union and United Kingdom requirements remain the same. This also includes goods which have been assessed by an European Union recognised notified body.
The UKCA mark must be used for placing goods on the Great Britain market from 1 January 2023 onwards.
Construction product manufacturers will still need to take action to ensure compliance with new responsibilities of importer, if these are placing a product on the Great Britain market from the European Union market.

Modification of the regulations governing the use and control of the ATG figurative mark

Reuse in the construction sector will become increasingly important. For trademarks on reused construction products, the principle of “Trademark exhaustion” applies, i.e. the sale of used goods is permitted and the existing trademarks must not be altered or removed when the product is offered for sale again after its initial use.
To protect the interests of the rightful users of the ATG figurative mark, i.e. the holders of technical approvals, the UBAtc board of administrators clarified that the ATG figurative mark may not be used by entities commercialising reused products for which an approval was issued before their first use.

Pile and micropile design

Recently, a number of important changes have taken place with regard to the design of piles and micropiles in Belgium.
A revision of the national annex of the Eurocode 7 was published, namely NBN EN 1997-1 ANB: 2022, which in turn refers to Buildwise Report 20 for the design of piles and micropiles.
In Buildwise Report 20, installation factors, model factors and partial safety measures are proposed for the various pile (sub)categories. No differentiation has been made in all these design factors, in contrast to previous versions (especially Buildwise Reports 12 and 19).
