If you need to continue to sell into the UK market, we believe that you do not have to transfer your ETA into a UKTA.
If you wish for the BBA to reissue the certificate under the UK-notified body number, this can be done, but is not an essential requirement.
In the case of selling to the EU market, where CE marking is concerned, you will be required to have your ETA copied across to an EU TAB (Technical Assessment Body) by the end of 2020.
We have already contacted all of our BBA ETA holders to find out if they want to convert their ETA to UKTA (UK Technical Assessment), and whether they want to transfer or duplicate the technical files to our EU partner TAB, or whether they want to do both or, in fact, neither. This decision will ultimately depend on the markets you intend to sell into.
Note: The Government has advised that existing certificates from UK Notified Bodies will be treated as if they were issued under the new UK framework, which means that you would only be required to update your existing ETA, which will support your UKCA marking.
