To ask Her Majesty's Government whether UK Notified Bodies will be able to continue to work with UK manufacturers, checking their products conform to the essential requirements of European directives which have also been transposed into UK law, until the end of the anticipated Brexit implementation period.

The Government recognises the valuable work undertaken by UK Notified Bodies in ensuring that products placed on the market have been through suitable assessment to ensure they comply with the relevant requirements.

During the implementation period the UK will no longer be a Member State of the European Union, but market access will continue on current terms.

For UK Notified Bodies this means that they will continue to be able to conduct third-party conformity assessments for both the UK and the EU markets as they do now.
