Safety relay myPNOZ ready to use in Great Britain even after 2022
Jul. 25, 2022
First UKCA certificate
Pilz is the first company in Germany to receive from TÜV Süd the UKCA certificate for the modular safety relay myPNOZ. As such, myPNOZ will be accepted on the British market even after January 2023.
In the wake of Brexit, the existing CE mark used in the European Union will be replaced in England, Wales and Scotland by the UKCA certificate. UKCA stands for United Kingdom Conformity Assessment and will be mandatory once the transition period expires at the end of 2022. From this point onwards, all products sold on the British market must have UKCA certification.
In collaboration with TÜV Süd, Pilz has already secured certification for the modular safety relay myPNOZ. As a result, Pilz can continue to supply its customers seamlessly in the UK. It also guarantees that customers who use Pilz products in their plant and machinery can also continue to export to Great Britain in compliance with directives.
In the coming months, many other Pilz products will be certified to UKCA. So even once the transition period ends on 1 January 2023, there will be a comprehensive portfolio available to import into Great Britain.
