bike-eu.com/laws-regulations/2017/02/trade-alert-eu-changes-cn-import-codes-for-e-bikes Under the European Union’s CN codes all imports into the European Union are tracked while all import, dumping and circumvention duties are linked to these codes. As of January 1 of this year, the CN codes for e-bikes and speed e-bikes/speed pedelecs changed. Entering the wrong CN code can have far reaching consequences. It not only impacts fiscal matters such as customs duties, also bans and restrictions, import/export licensing and permit requirements, documentation requirements, and the obligation to report certain measures.
The first of the two main changes for the bicycle industry in the list of CN codes is in the category ‘bicycles, tricycles and quadricycles, with pedal assistance, with an auxiliary electric motor with a continuous rated power not exceeding 250 watts’. The new CN codes is 8711 60 10. The old code was 8711 90 10.
The second main change is the introduction of a new CN code for speed e-bikes; CN 8711 60 90. Till last year the code was 8711 90 10. The category 8711 90 90 has been combined with the new 8711 60 90 as it was hardly used. For all products which do not comply with the conditions for the category 8711 60 10 and 8711 60 90 the category 8711 90 00 has been created and referred to as ‘others’.
The CN codes for electric bikes entered into force as of January 1, 2012 and were created on request of the European industry organizations COLIBI/COLIPED which merged into CONEBI.

2019 – EU imposes dumping duties on all kinds of e-Bikes from China : The Official Journal of the European Commission published two regulations on January 18: the definitive anti-dumping duty (20199/72) and the definitive countervailing duty (2019/73) for bicycles with electric auxiliary motor, origin China, following the complaint made by the European Association of Bicycle Manufacturers (EBMA). These translate into a total of 79.3% of additional taxes to the tariff of the tariff heading. The EU has chosen to establish individual rates according to the manufacturer. The regulations specify the possible reductions that exist in the manufacturer that exports to the EU.
