EN 15194 applies to EPAC bicycles for private and commercial use with exception of EPAC intended for hire from unattended stations. It is intended to cover all common significant hazards, hazardous situations and events of electrically power-assisted bicycles, when used as intended and under conditions of misuse that are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer.

This standard is intended to cover electrically power-assisted bicycles of a type which have a maximum continuous rated power of 0,25 kW, of which the output is progressively reduced and finally cut off as the EPAC reaches a speed of 25 km/h, or sooner, if the cyclist stops pedalling.

EN 15194 specifies requirements and test methods for engine power management systems, electrical circuits including the charging system for the design and assembly of electrically power-assisted bicycles and sub-assemblies for systems having a rated voltage up to and including 48 V d.c. or integrated battery charger with a nominal 230 V a.c. input.

It specifies safety and safety-related performance requirements for the design, assembly, and testing of EPAC bicycles and subassemblies intended for use on public roads, and lays down guidelines for instructions on the use and care of such bicycles.

EN 15194 applies to EPAC bicycles that have a maximum saddle height of 635 mm or more and that are intended for use on public roads. This standard is not applicable to EPACs which are manufactured before the date of their publication as EN.
