The CodeMark scheme rules will take effect from 7 September 2022.

All applications for certification already in progress prior to 7 September 2022 may continue to be assessed under the requirements of the existing scheme. Despite this, any certificate issued after 7 September 2022 (irrespective of being assessed under the current or new requirements) must be issued in compliance with the Building (Product Certification) Regulations 2022 in respect of certificate content.
