New Child Seat regs

Postby dls » Tue Feb 21, 2017 10:47 am

I know these are coming / have come in, but have yet to find an explanation which manages to be clear and authoritative.

ANybody else have an explanation or a good link?

Is this not clear enough?

New regs are for new booster seats:
Since April 2016, The new regulations come into force on 1st March 2017– but they only apply to New models, so you can continue to use backless booster seats you already own.
Under the new law, backless booster cushions should only be bought for kids who are both more than 125cm (4ft 1in) tall, and weigh more than 22kg (3st 7lb).

I noticed <no name german suppermarket> were selling off booster seats this week - no doubt to beat the ban

I have seen that page. I did not and not find it clear.

If it is so clear, why does it not make it clear that we are free to continue to use existing booster seats? (Sorry just found the link to the right)

This one.

Personally I like to read the legislation than press releases, but it seems this is around the sale of the product as much as its use.

Whoever came up with the "known as i-size"... ffs.

It seems this is EU legislation
