From 1 July 2019, all Singapore retailers will only be allowed to sell e-scooters that are certified to the UL2272 standard for use on our public paths.
All non-UL2272 certified e-scooters will be automatically deregistered on 31 December 2020.
From 1 January 2021, all electric scooters in Singapore will have to be UL2272 certified.
UL2272 is a comprehensive safety standard for motorised PMDs which will ensure that such devices have a lower risk of electrical fires. These fires largely consisted of e-scooters that were illegally modified, purchased from errant online sellers and e-scooter chargers that did not adhere to the Spring Singapore safety certification requirements.
Watch this space as we are bringing in more UL2272 certified electric scooters!
