No comment Olkipukki on the UK/GB+NI differences  :box:

No worries, but would suggest to start the reading of "Market Surveillance Regulation (EU) 2019/1020" if you still want to sell your CE marked products directly in EU  ::)
Do you mean this document: https://www.legislation.gov.uk/eur/2019/1020/contents

What are you hinting at that we've missed?

Accepting CE includes accepting all CE directives... i guess that would not really support the idea of the brexit.
Indeed. And a mutual trade agreement with the US will likely involve accepting FCC standards. And then there is China as well... In the end the UK is way too small to have it's own certification standards to comply with. It is way too much hassle for manufacturers. Accepting CE, FCC or any other foreign approval standard OTOH means using requirements the UK has no say over at all.
There are small lies, big lies and then there is what is on the screen of your oscilloscope.

I wouldn't count on that.. look at eg. Brasil. Some years ago they made a quasi new regime for type testing radio stuff.

In fact, just taking IEC (and maybe ETSI ) standards let you have acceptance from the industries. Nobody will complaing because of the new label or some stupid database...

The only ones getting hurt are small enterprises...

So if you export something into the EU direct to its end user you might, maybe want to switch to having a distributor or use someone like Holdtech or a virtual office or if you are small just cross your fingers and hope you fall through the cracks. OTOH if you already have distribution this along with fees & taxes is yet another thing they can and probably will try and insist you take out of your margin so they can carry on as if nothing changed; fun times. And still the government tell us to "be prepared" without giving us anything concrete to prepare for. Currently you can make sure you have an EORI number keep up-to-date on rules like this and wait to see how badly they f**k the rest up.

It looks like this EU directive/rule doesn't come into force till the middle of next year - so I would expect this situation to be clarified after 31st Dec 2020...
