Just thinking on the issues with electrics, and compliance, and I'm wondering if anyone has ever seen a legal Pedelec in Australia?
I've noticed that most ( all ) of the ones I've seen don't have compliance plates, according to;
5 Marking, labelling In addition to the requirements of EN 14764, the EPAC shall be visibly and durably marked according to EN 15194 as follows:
According to EN 15194:
Or the full version.
5 Marking, labelling
The EPAC shall be marked visibly, legibly and indelibly with the following minimum particulars:
Contact and address of the manufacturer or authorized representative;
EPAC according to EN 15194;
Appropriate marking required by legislation (CE);
Year of construction, that is the year in which the manufacturing was completed (it is not possible to use a code);
Cut off speed XX km/h1);
Maximum continuous rated power XX kW2);
Maximum permissible total weight (e.g. marked near the seat post or handlebar);
Designation of series or type;
Individual serial number if any;
Mass if EPAC mass is more than 25 kg and they have to be move by hands.
Since this has to be rather conspicuous by nature, and I've never located it on a Pedelec yet, I've come to the conclusion that there are not many, or perhaps not even any, legal Pedelecs in WA.
Though if someone knows of anyone with a legal Pedelec anywhere - could I please ask for anyone to post some pics of compliance plates and models?
