In the past few months, ETRA has invested a great amount of work in lobbying for electric cycles. In December, ETRA explained and defended the proposal for better European regulations for electric cycles in the European Commission's working group "motorcycles". ETRA did this on behalf of the more than 70 companies and organizations that have subscribed to the proposal. A week earlier, ETRA attended the European Commission's working group "machinery" to find out more about the relationship between the Machinery Directive and electric cycles.
ETRA is discovering more and more European legislation affecting the electric cycle business, affecting your business. So, a lot still needs to be done and urgently. In the legislative and political field, the electric cycle business needs to secure support for regulations, which will not hamper the full development of the market. To learn more click here.
