Pedal bicycles: supplier guide

A revised consumer product safety standard for pedal bicycles came into effect on 1 November 1999.

Compliance with consumer product safety standards is mandatory.

This means that all suppliers of pedal bicycles must ensure their bicycles comply with the mandatory requirements. This includes

  • manufacturers
  • distributors
  • importers
  • retailers.

Hire bicycles are not required to comply but hirers should conduct regular safety checks and maintain their bicycles in safe condition.
