In the event of the UK leaving the EU without a withdrawal agreement, the Government will introduce a new public database of conformity assessment bodies that are able to assess products against UK regulations, called UKMCAB. UKMCAB will be publicly available on exit day. UK Notified Bodies form an important part of our economy and as such under the new regulatory regime they will automatically become UK approved bodies and be uploaded to UKMCAB after exit day.
