EPAC Standard for e-Bikes Expected for April

BRUSSELS, Belgium – The EN 15194 standard for EPACs (Electronically Power Assisted Cycles) is expected to be announced next April. With the new standard the European e-Bike market will change drastically as EN 15194 include complex Electro Magnetic Compatibility (EMC) requirements. 

 

As the final voting round has already taken place with all CEN members (27 EU member states and 3 EFTA countries) agreeing on this standard, the last step for the implementation of the standard is publication. All CEN-member countries will publish this standard as a national/EN standard like for instance in Germany as DIN EN 15194.

A detailed report on the EN 15194 standard for EPACs including Electro Magnetic Compatibility (EMC) requirements will be published in Bike Europe’s February edition; publication date February 20, 2009.
