The Voice of the Lift, Escalator and Moving Walk Industry in Europe


The ELA Components Committee is intensively involved in the analysis, requirements and implications of Brexit with UKCA marking and certification requirements specifically for lift safety components.

Thanks to the activities of English economic associations such as LEIA, the English Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, BEIS on 24 August 2021 extended the transition period until 31 December 2022 (previously 31 December 2021) to give companies a further year to use product safety marking - UKCA.

At the last online meeting of the Components Committee on 11 October 2021, the certification requirements were intensively discussed with delegates of the future approved bodies TÜV SÜD and Liftinstituut.

In order to inform all ELA members as a whole, the Committee is working on an Information Note on Brexit.
