Dealer association launches opt-in database of certified and insured e-bikes

Published February 2, 2023

IRVINE, Calif. (BRAIN) — The National Bicycle Dealers Association is now maintaining an e-bike database that includes supplier-provided information on certifications and insurance policies for bikes available in the U.S. The database will be accessible by members of the NBDA, which is encouraging all e-bike suppliers and manufacturers to add their contact information and credentials to the list. 

"My hope is that this comprehensive list will allow retailers to quickly determine which products they wish to bring into their stores and offer for sale to their community. We saw a need for the industry to have a quick resource to navigate the multiple brands on the market, with the formation we now hope that brands support the effort by contributing their data thus allowing for their partners to have easy access to this important information," NBDA President Heather Mason said in a press release Thursday.

The database asks suppliers for contact information, product certifications held (UL 2849, UL 2271, UL 2272, EN15194), CPSC Certification and product liability insurance. The form allows brands to upload supporting documentation. The database will be under review by both the NBDA and associated firms, testing labs and brokers to ensure the information submitted is accurate.

The NBDA said the information will not be sold or given out.
