Bafang Laboratory Receives Accreditation
Feb 04, 2024
In its efforts to help elevate e-bike industry quality standards, Bafang built a test lab, Bafang Laboratory Center, to test two-wheel drive systems. It has announced that the lab has been awarded accreditation by the China National Accreditation Service for Conformity Assessment (CNAS). The accreditation is in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025: 2017 General Requirements for the Competence of Testing and Calibration Laboratories.
This is great news for e-bikes as Bafang makes many different motors and is amongst the most commonly found across all the e-bikes we review.
This new accreditation comes even after Bafang Laboratory Center has secured other accreditations. It was already certified by Underwriters Laboratories, Technische Überwachungs Vereine (TÜV), China Quality Certification Center and Société Générale de Surveillance (SGS).
Bafang maintains multiple laboratories for different types of testing. In addition to their motor performance laboratory, they maintain a battery performance laboratory, an e-bike system performance laboratory, an acoustics laboratory (which can test motor noise volume) as well as a number of other laboratories that can test in a variety of parameters including mechanical and environmental factors.
Bafang employs more than 1000 people at 10 international locations. The company is headquartered in Suzhou, China, one of the centers of e-bike design and production. Suzhou is a suburb of Shanghai, near China’s eastern coast. Bafang also maintains sales and service centers in Denmark, France, Italy, Netherlands and the U.S.
