UKCA marking, similar to CE marking, is a visible sign – valid on the UK market - that the safety devices installed on all WITTUR products are compliant with the UK lifts regulation 2016, based on the issuance of UKCA type examination certificates and periodical supervision audits on the production lines by an approved body. UKCA marking is required by The Lift Regulations 2016, schedule 11 (A), in a similar way as CE marking, which is imposed by 2014/33/EU Lift Directive.
Wittur completed the UKCA certification process for all overspeed governors, safety gears and most elevator doors; therefore, since January 1st, 2023 Wittur started to provide UKCA marking on the labels of most Wittur components shipped to UK containing a safety device, well ahead of the current deadline of 1st of January 2025, when all products shipped to UK will have to be certified according to UKCA and bear the UKCA marking.
The respective UKCA Declarations of Conformity, together with the UKCA type examination certificates, are available for Wittur customers.
For a limited number of landing doors only, the UKCA certification process is ongoing and its completion is expected for Q2-2023; according to the provisions of UK law, Wittur is allowed to ship these products with UKCA marking because they are entitled of an European certification.
In the gallery you can find two examples of UKCA marking on the label of a Wittur product.
