Leading the way in service for the Compliance Industry

As a UK Notified Body, Eurofins CML automatically became a UK Approved Body on the 1st January 2021. From this date, Eurofins CML will be able to provide the UKCA equivalent services to those currently provided as a Notified Body for the ATEX Directive.

CML B.V., our Dutch Notified Body, is unaffected by the changes and will continue to provide services as a Notified Body for the ATEX Directive within the EU.

There will be no Approved Bodies outside the UK, only UK Approved Bodies can issue the following to support UKCA marking:

UK Type Examination certificates
The main differences between UK Type Examination certificate and EU-Type Examination certificate are listed here:

1) “EU-Type” is replaced with “UK Type”
2) “Directive 2014/34/EU” is replaced with “UK SI 2016 No. 1107 as amended by UK SI 2019 No. 696”
3) References to parts of Directive 2014/34/EU replaced with references to parts of the UK Statutory Instruments
4) Certificate number format will be “CML 21UKEX1234”
5) Reference to Notified Body replaced with Approved Body
6) The marking remains the same
7) The Ex symbol remains in use

UK Quality Assurance Notifications (QAN)
The main differences between UK QAN and EU QAN are listed here:

1) UK added to name, “UK Quality Assurance Notification”, abbreviated to UK QAN
2) “Directive 2014/34/EU” is replaced with “UK SI 2016 No. 1107 as amended by UK SI 2019 No. 696”
3) References to parts of Directive 2014/34/EU replaced with references to parts of the UK Statutory Instruments
4) Certificate number format will be “CML 21UKQAN1234”
5) Reference to Notified Body replaced with Approved Body
6) References to CE mark replaced with UKCA mark
7) Identification number of Notified Body replaced with Approved Body identification number

Technical File receipts

Where the legislation requires a technical file to be lodged with an Approved Body, in exactly the same way that currently exists for ATEX with a Notified Body, due to the need for the manufacturer to submit the file, there is no option to transfer or duplicate an existing submitted file. As a result, they will be treated as new file submissions.

Manufacturers who currently have a file submitted to CML B.V. can apply to have this lodged with Eurofins CML for UKCA marking, effectively granting access to Eurofins CML to the CML B.V. file.
