European E-Bike Rules Evoke Lots of Questions

FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany - Companies manufacturing, distributing or selling electric bikes in Europe may get lost in a maze of rules and regulations. These complicated regulations come with: type-approval, CE-standards, EMC, Machinery Directive, helmet obligation, insurance, traffic codes etcetera. It became obvious that e-bike companies still have a lot of questions on these regulations, taking into account all the questions asked during the Information Meeting at Eurobike organised by LEVA-EU and this trade journal.
