Northern Ireland - UKNI

Northern Ireland (Northern Ireland Protocol) - UKNI

Machinery manufacturers in Northern Ireland are subject to the Northern Ireland Protocol and as a part of the UK government’s commitment for Northern Ireland businesses have unfettered access to the rest of the UK market. They remain able to place compliant machinery manufactured in Northern Ireland on the UK market with an EU conformity assessment marking (CE marking and EC Declaration).

In this case Machinery manufacturers in Northern Ireland must apply a UKNI marking to the machinery and take full responsibility for the product’s conformity with the requirements of the relevant legislation.


The UKNI marking must never be displayed on its own - it always accompanies a CE Marking. The UKNI marking is not recognised on the EU market. Placing goods on the EU market use the CE marking on its own, without the UKNI marking.
