Placing manufactured goods on the EU market from 1 January 2021

Support provided by Gov UK

What does this involve?

Find out what you need to do to comply with regulations on manufactured goods that will be placed on the market from 1 January 2021. This will depend on the type of goods you’re placing on the market. There are different rules for:

  • goods regulated under the old approach (such as chemicals, medicines and vehicles)
  • non-harmonised goods covered by national legislation

If you’ve already placed your goods on the market in an EU country (or in the UK) before 1 January 2021, you do not need to do anything.
