Personal Electronic Mobility (E-Mobility) Devices

Important: If you supply products for sale on Amazon, you must comply with all federal, state, and local laws and Amazon policies applicable to those products and product listings.

Personal E-Mobility Devices include the following product types:

Hoverboards/Electric Scooters - Required documentation ANSI/CAN/UL 2272

A hoverboard or an electric scooter is a self-propelled two-wheel electric device powered by an onboard battery pack with two wheels and a board between the wheels for the rider to stand and balance on. The user shifts his/her weight to move the device in the desired direction. There are no handlebars on self-propelled two-wheeled devices.

Monorovers/Electric Unicycles - Required documentation ANSI/CAN/UL 2272

A monorover or an electric unicycle (E-Unicycle) is a self-propelled electric device powered by an onboard battery pack with one or two centrally-located wheels with small platforms on either side for the rider to stand on during operation. The user shifts his/her weight to move the device in the desired direction. There are no handlebars on self-propelled two-wheeled devices.

Electric Skateboard (e-skateboard) - Required documentation ANSI/CAN/UL 2272

An electric skateboard has four wheels and has an added battery pack and power system to aid riders with added torque while travelling. An electric skateboard may have a handheld remote control to allow the rider to control the device during use.

Electric Scooter (e-scooter) – Required documentation ANSI/CAN/UL 2272

An electrical scooter may take a number of different forms: foldable scooters, kickstand scooters, and rideable scooters (e.g. mopeds). Electric scooters have limited range and a max speed of less than forty miles per hour. These products are popular for customers who wish to limit their carbon footprint while commuting, are not ready to make the commitment of an electric car, and have limited distances to travel.

Self-Balancing Personal Transport – Required documentation ANSI/CAN/UL 2272

A self-balancing transport device may have one or two wheels. These devices are powered by a rechargeable battery pack and use the shifting weight of the rider to balance the device. Common examples of self-balancing transport devices include Segway-branded products and OneWheel-branded products.

Electric Bicycle (e-bike, e-bicycle) – Required documentation UL 2849

An electric bicycle, also called an e-bike, is a two-wheeled device used for personal transportation. Resembling an analog bicycle, these products have an added battery and power system to aid the rider with added torque when traversing elevated or rough terrain.

Electric Tricycle (e-trike, e-tricycle) – Required documentation UL 2849

An electric tricycle is equivalent to an electric bicycle, but with the exception of an additional wheel.

Who should submit documents?

If you are selling any of the above items, you must provide documents to confirm the safety of your products. Amazon is requiring documentation indicated testing compliance with the standard for each product you are applying to sell.
