A new technical briefing has been launched to keep GAI members at the forefront of changes to conformity marking, following the introduction of UKCA and CE+UKNI marking.

The Guidance on conformity marking, third party testing, assessment and certification technical briefing, written by the Guild of Architectural Ironmongers (GAI) and the Door & Hardware Federation (DHF), gives a comprehensive overview of the changes door hardware professionals must prepare for in advance of 1 January 2022.  The guide also includes a helpful graphic showing the product marking sales territories and which form of product marking can be used in Great Britain, Northern Ireland and the EU.
