At the start of 2021, legislation requiring goods on the UK market to carry the new UKCA Mark came into effect. From January 1st 2023 this legislation will begin to be fully enforced, and unprepared firms will be exposed to severe disruption in ensuring they remain compliant and keep their documentation up to date in line with the new standards.
Additionally, firms manufacturing and selling equipment into both UK and EU markets will need to use both the CE and UKCA marks, requiring them to be certified under diverging pressure equipment safety regulations.
This seminar addresses the certification and compliance challenges for pressure equipment manufacturers and operators in a post-Brexit landscape.
Featuring presentations from key UK pressure equipment stakeholders, get the guidance you need to understand how these changes will impact your business and how you can prepare to operate safely and legally in the new environment.
Perspectives from manufacturing, notified bodies, regulators, legislators and owner-operators will be shared, covering the full pressure systems value chain.
Book your place to access this unique forum and benchmark your organisation’s preparedness for the new legislative framework against your peers, and take steps to ensure your new year’s party isn’t ruined by the Pressure Equipment Safety Regulations.

COVID-19 GUIDANCE FOR ATTENDEES:
We continue to operate all of our events in accordance with the most up to date UK Government advice on Covid-19.
From 24 February 2022 the Government removed the last domestic restrictions associated with Covid-19 in England. People are no longer required to self-isolate even if they test positive for Covid-19. The UK Government has published its plan for living with Covid-19 on the basis that although the virus is still in circulation, a return to pre-pandemic life is now possible. It is therefore down to individuals to assess the risk of returning to ‘normal’ activities such as social mixing and attending events.
However, it is important to us that we continue to protect each other and to support this we request:
- That you do not attend IMechE events if you feel unwell, particularly if you have respiratory or gastrointestinal symptoms
- That you do not attend IMechE events if you have tested positive or suspect that you may have Covid-19
- That you continue to maintain good respiratory and hand hygiene i.e. covering your mouth and nose if you feel the need to cough or sneeze, washing and/or sanitising hands regularly
