2020-03-23 Drafts Protective helmets nowadays are having multi-functions by using hi-tech, for examples, the Bluetooth video playback and photography functions. As these new functions are battery-powered (secondary lithium battery cells or secondary lithium battery packs), there are safety concerns. The BSMI is proposing to amend the inspection requirements for certain protective helmets currently subject to legal inspection to ensure their safety with multi-functions. This proposal applies to protective helmets for (1) drivers and passengers of motorcycle and mopeds, (2) pedal cyclists and (3) users of skates, skateboards and roller skates. In addition, a new version of the inspection standard will be adopted for the second and third categories of protective helmets. The conformity assessment procedure remains the same: Registration of Product Certification (RPC) or Batch Inspection. (Send your comments on or before 2020-05-25)
