UKCA Marking Update: UK Approved Body no 2538

UKCA Marking Update: UK Approved Body no 2538

4ward Testing is now a UK Approved body for the testing of sealants to BS EN 15651 1-4:2012 and Tile Adhesives to BS EN 12004:2007+A1:2012 for the new UKCA mark.

Type Testing under AVCP3 is required to be carried out by an EU NB for CE Marking and a UK AB for UKCA marking. We are currently not allowed to re-issue AVCP3 reports from an EU NB, as this is not acceptable by our National Accreditation Body in the UK, and many of those in the EU Member States. 

CE marked sealants and adhesives will be required to have UKCA marking from 1st January 2022 (assuming the legislation to cease recognition of valid CE marks is completed in 2021).

We will continue to work tirelessly to test sealants for UKCA marking for the UK and advise all manufacturers to contact us as soon as possible regarding any UKCA mark requirements as the demand for testing has increased significantly and we are scheduling testing as efficiently as possible to meet deadlines, but this may prove difficult towards the end of the year.

If you have any questions or need further information on the UKCA marking of your sealants or tile adhesives, please call +44 (0) 1798 342 240 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
