Certification mark for electric scooters, hoverboards and similar products




The certification mark applies to recreational battery powered mobility devices such as scooters and hoverboards in terms of evaluation of the safety of the motor and battery and charger combination for energy and electrical shock hazards. The performance, reliability or rider safety is not within the scope.

Basis of certification (Test Requirements):

The certification mark is awarded in the framework of voluntary testing and certification covering the electrical drive train system including the battery and charger system combinations for electric powered self-balancing scooters as defined in ANSI/CAN/UL-2272.

Key Words of the certification mark:

  • Safety tested

    The voluntary certification mark with the statement “Safety tested” is issued for products, indicating that the product was tested and certified by the independent third-party organisation of TÜV SÜD Product Service for conformity with the essential technical safety requirements.

  • Production monitored

    Periodic surveillance and/or monitoring of the manufacture of a product constitutes the basic premise for certification that includes the award of a certification mark. Certification always requires product testing and regular factory inspections.

    As a third-party expert organisation, TÜV SÜD Product Service verifies that the manufacturer is able to maintain consistent quality in line with the requirements throughout high-volume production and has established the necessary quality system, including incoming goods inspections, lists of materials and final product testing. In addition, calibration of the necessary measuring and monitoring equipment must be ensured.

    Surveillance and/or monitoring covers the testing of safety-critical components and other materials used. If unauthorized changes are made to the product, the certificate will become invalid and the TÜV SÜD certification mark may no longer be used.
