If you want to offer electric bicycles via bol.com, you have to comply with the European legislation that applies to electric bikes.
Bicycles that are sold, have to comply with EU Regulation 168/2013. (Electric) bicycles are excluded from this legislation. However, not every electric bicycle is actually considered an electric bicycle. Please read more below on how this is determined.
Whether or not a bike is considered to be an electric bicycle or if it’s considered to be a moped is determined by 3 criteria. It’s labelled as an electric bicycle if it meets the following conditions:
- The maximum speed of the bicycle does not exceed 25 kilometers per hour.
- The motor power of the bicycle does not exceed 250W.
- The bike has no throttle/hand throttle.
You can find information in the assortment policy.
