Safety requirements for bicycles and related

 The harmonised standards dealing with City and Trekking Bicycles, Mountain-Bicycles, Racing Bicycles and Luggage carriers for bicycles will be revised and the new standards will be drafted so as to meet the requirements set out in the Commission Decision.

 

European standard EN 14765:2005+A1:2008 specifies safety requirements and test methods for bicycles for young children, which are excluded from the scope of the Toys Safety Directive (2009/48/EU). A mandate will be produced following the publication of the attached Commission Decision so as to be able to publish the reference to this standard in the Official Journal of the European Union.

As soon as the revised standards are published in the Official Journal of the European Union, bicycles placed on the European market and which are in compliance with these standards will be presumed to be safe. The current safety requirements can therefore be considered as the basis for the standards which will be drafted and which will replace the current harmonised standards.
