Post-Brexit statement

This image for Image Layouts addon

The UK transition period with the European Union ended on 31st December 2020 and from January 2021, the quality standards started to change. The existing CE Mark will start to be replaced by a new UK standard known as a UK CA Mark.

There will be a one year long changeover period and by January 2022 all products will need to be marked with the UK CA Mark and the CE Mark will no longer be valid. In response to this, from January 2021, BFT SpA started issuing products with the new UK CA standard label on them, gradually phasing-out the CE Mark in time for the 2022 deadline. This will ensure that all BFT products will continue to meet all UK regulations. We will be updating all of our Declaration of Conformity documents and Instruction Manuals to reflect this change.

To avoid any supply disruption, Bft Automation has taken the opportunity to leverage the full capability of our UK facilities by carrying significantly increased levels of stock imported from our Italian headquarters and other suppliers around the globe so we can continue to provide an uninterrupted service to all our customers in the UK.

Our two distribution centres in Swindon and Stockport provide over 30,000 square feet of space that now have over £2.5m worth of stock in place to support our customers. As such, Bft Automation and its customers should be well positioned for business-as-usual, regardless of any import delay issues that might be caused by Brexit.
