Will ETAs issued by UK TABs continue to be displayed on the EOTA Website?

All ETAs issued by a British TAB will lose their validity as per 2021-01-01. Consequently, they will disappear at that date from the EOTA website. However, the manufacturer may request the transfer of the ETA and, accordingly, an EU-based TAB may re-issue such ETA. This means that:

  • ETAs for which no transfer has been requested will no longer be displayed on the EOTA website.
  • Based on such transfer, newly issued ETAs will be displayed under the name of the new EU-27-TAB.

Will it be possible for manufacturers to continue CE marking their products indefinitely where the ETA has been issued (before Brexit) by a UK designated TAB, or will a new ETA need to be issued by an EU-27 TAB?

Only products placed on the EU market before 1st January 2021 can still be marketed until they reach their end user. Any product placed on the Union market after 1st January 2021 must be covered by an ETA issued by an EU TAB and CE marked in accordance with this ETA, as mentioned in our reply to the question above.

How to transfer UK ETAs to another EU TAB in EOTA?

EOTA Technical Board agreed on a simplified procedure for the transfer of UK ETAs to another TAB in September 2019.

Will it be possible for ETA holders to maintain valid a AVCP Certificate issued by a Notified Body (NB) from United Kingdom in 2021?

NO, the Certificate is valid until December 31st, 2020. From that date on,  it will be necessary to issue a new AVCP Certificate by a Notified Body for AVCP tasks from any of the 27 EU member states.
