All You Need to Know on E-Bike Regulations
AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands – Bike Europe has gathered all EU regulations on e-bikes, pedelecs and speed pedelecs. In this Whitepaper we present you a manageable overview on all you need to know on e-bike regulations.
Great need for comprehensive overview
That there’s a great need for a comprehensive overview of EU regulations for all matters related to electric bicycles is, for instance, underlined by what Bike Europe’s recent coverage of happenings at English e-bike dealers evoked. The report ‘Speed Tuning Kits Threaten E-Bike Market Development’ was read over 4,000 times and got close to 20 reactions from concerned readers.
From type approval to machinery directive
Bike Europe offers now a Whitepaper that contains all EU regulations; from the type-approval legislation for speed pedelecs that comes into force January 1, 2017, but which is already now to be taken into account; up to the Machinery Directive, Electro Magnetic Compatibility, specific measures applying to batteries as well as obligations for dealers.
