Tiempo estimado de lectura: 25 segundos

On March 15, 2024, the US CPSC published an advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPR) on electric bicycles. The purpose of this ANPR is to collect information related to potential regulatory requirements to address the risk of injury associated with mechanical hazards of e-bikes. An e-bike is a bicycle equipped with an electric motor, and they are sold and marketed for adults and children. Currently, CPSC has a mandatory standard for bicycles and low-speed e-bikes under the FHSA at 16 CFR part 1512. ASTM also has voluntary standards for bicycles, but they are not specific to e-bikes. The Commission invites the public to review this ANPR and submit information and comments that would assist the Commission as it considers regulatory options to reduce the risk of injury associated with mechanical hazards of e-bikes. Deadline for comments is May 14, 2024.​
