Speed Pedelec Type Approval Changed per January 1, 2018
BRUSSELS, Belgium - On January 1, 2018, the ‘old’ type approval for speed pedelecs expired. This results in the fact that EU Directive 2002/24 no longer applies. With the start of the New Year speed pedelecs must comply to the type approval based on the EU 168/2013 regulations. It raises the question of how to deal with unsold inventory of speed pedelecs that have the 2002/24 type approval.
