From 1 July 2020, all electric scooters in Singapore will have to be UL2272 certified. In other words, non UL2272 certified e-scooters will be automatically deregistered on 30 June 2020.
The UL2272 requirement is implemented as a response to tackle the rampant cases of fire involving poorly made e-scooters. These fires largely consisted of e-scooters that were illegally modified, purchased from errant online sellers, and chargers that did not adhere to the Spring Singapore safety certification requirements.
