As of March 21, 2023 the mayor New York City, Eric Adams has signed a lithium-ion battery safety package aimed at reducing fire hazards in battery-powered consumer goods and promote safe electric micro mobility such as e-bikes and e-scooters that are sold, rented, or leased in New York City.

The law mandates that e-bikes, personal e-mobility products (scooters and hoverboards), and batteries for Light Electric Vehicles (LEVs) must meet specific safety standards, including ANSI/CAN/UL 2849, ANSI/CAN/UL 2272, and ANSI/CAN/UL/ULC 2271. Manufacturers must also provide safety information on lithium-ion battery storage and disposal.

ACT Lab has the capability to conduct all the necessary testing, as referenced by both the CPSC and NYC, to ensure that your products meet all applicable requirements and comply with the law. Prior to making any decisions regarding compliance, it is crucial to have a thorough understanding of your actual obligations. ACT Lab can offer guidance on the most effective approach to achieve this, balancing your risk concerns with your compliance budget.

Learn more about our e-validate Directory. This online resource provides instantaneous verification of compliance, demonstrating to buyers and regulatory services that your products have been thoroughly tested and are compliant with important micromobility safety standards. Upon completion of testing, ACT will provide you with unique QR code artwork that can be placed on your product. The QR code artwork allows consumers to easily recognize and confirm compliance of your product, making their purchasing process easier. ACT is continuously dedicated to consumer safety. Let us guide you through the world of global e-bicycle, e-scooters, and other e-mobility regulations and requirements, including ANSI/CAN/UL/ULC 2271, 2272, and 2849 safety standards for lithium-ion batteries, e-bikes, and e-mobility devices in the thriving US and Canadian markets.

UL-2849: Safety Standard for Electric Bicycles

UL-2849 is a safety standard developed for electric bicycles. It outlines the requirements for testing and evaluating the performance of electric bicycles, including their electrical and mechanical components, battery systems, and controls. This standard helps ensure that e-bikes meet certain safety and performance standards before they are sold in the market, providing assurance to consumers that they are buying a product that has been rigorously tested and evaluated for safety.

It is essential that your e-bike complies with the UL-2849 safety standard. By doing so, you can ensure that your products are safe, reliable, and meet the highest safety standards, giving your customers a safe e-bike to ride. As a testing service provider, we can help manufacturers test their electric bicycles to UL-2849 standards, ensuring that their products meet the safety and performance standards required by the market. 

UL-2271: Safety Standard for Lithium-Ion Batteries

UL-2271 is a safety of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries used in  electric scooters, e-bikes, and similar personal mobility devices. The standard sets requirements for the design and construction of battery packs and modules, as well as the testing and evaluation of their safety and performance. The standard helps ensure that lithium-ion batteries meet certain safety and performance standards and provides assurance to consumers that they are buying a product that has been rigorously tested and evaluated for safety.

UL-2272: Safety Standard for Electrical Systems for Personal E-Mobility Devices

UL-2272 is a safety standard for electrical systems of personal e-mobility devices. The standard applies to the electrical and fire-hazard safety of e-mobility devices, covering the electrical system including the charging system, battery pack, and control system. The standard helps ensure that e-mobility devices sold in the market meet certain safety and performance standards and provides assurance to consumers that they are buying a product that has been rigorously tested and evaluated for safety.

At ACT Lab, we understand the importance of safety and quality when it comes to electric bicycles and e-mobility products. We are committed to providing our customers with products that meet these safety standards and have undergone rigorous testing and evaluation.
