Active Mobility Rules for Retailers

Under the Active Mobility Act 2017, retailers of Personal Mobility Devices (PMDs), Power-Assisted Bicycles (PABs) and Personal Mobility Aids (PMAs) are required to comply with the following requirements:

  • Display the prescribed warning notices
  • Not display and advertise non-compliant devices for sale
  • Not sell PMDs for use on roads
  • Not sell non-compliant devices for use on public paths
  • Not alter or modify devices to be non-compliant
Warning notices for retailers of personal mobility devices (PMDs), power-assisted bicycles (PABs) and personal mobility aids (PMAs)

Retailers must display at least one of each of the respective warning notices for selling i) PMDs (PDF, 1.05mb), and ii) motorised wheelchairs and mobility scooters (otherwise known as PMAs) (PDF, 14.9mb). The notice(s) must be no smaller than 29.7cm x 42cm, printed indelibly in colour with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi, and displayed prominently at or near any point of sale or payment.

With effect from 1 July 2019, it is an offence to display or advertise for sale and/or sell motorised PMDs that are not certified to conform with the UL2272 standards.

If found guilty, the retailer could face a fine of up to $5,000 and/or imprisonment up to three months for the first offence. The list of rules and corresponding penalties applicable for PMD and PMA retailers are available on the Singapore Statutes Online.
