Hallmarking Requirements From 1 January

The British Hallmarking Council has updated its guidance on hallmarking requirements from 1 January 2021 following Government advice.
Obligations to recognise equivalent EU hallmarks will end in Great Britain. For the Northern Ireland market, EU hallmarks will continue to be recognised, by virtue of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act.

Any product already on the market before January 2021 will be legal, under the same legislation. The question of the length of time this will be effective has not yet been determined. It may be good practice to maintain records demonstrating that items being sold were on the market prior to 1 January 2021.

Any new stock entering the Great Britain market will require a UK national hallmark or an International Convention hallmark.
Any new stock exported to EU member states will require a mark recognised by those countries.
