New standard for hoverboards

Hoverboard small

Australia and New Zealand have a new standard for hoverboards - AS/NZS 60335.2.201-2016 Household and similar electrical appliances – Safety – Part 2.201: Particular requirements for battery powered self-balancing personal transport devices.

In recent years battery powered self-balancing personal transport devices, otherwise known as hoverboards, have grown in popularity across the world. However, as the safety of these devices was questioned, it was identified that consumers and manufacturers alike could benefit from the development of a standard.

AS/NZS 60335.2.201-2016 provides clarity to suppliers, manufacturers, and regulators to help ensure the safety of products sold on the Australian and New Zealand markets.
