MANUFACTURER REGULATIONS AND ECE CERTIFICATION LABELS

All companies manufacturing child safety seats must meet the requirements imposed by European Directive ECE R44 that defines the design, approval and manufacturing criteria

Before being placed on the market, each product undergoes a special approval procedure by certified laboratories that guarantee consumers that the child car seat complies with the safety standards imposed by law.

Every car seat manufactured and approved in accordance with this regulation carries an ECE certification label.

This orange label is a sort of identity card for child car seats and indicates its fundamental features. Before making a purchase, it is essential to check that the product carries this easily recognisable orange label, usually applied on the back or base of the child car seat.

SAFETY OF USED/SECOND-HAND CAR SEATS IS NOT GUARENTEED

The use of used child car seats is not recommended: they could, in fact be damaged or worn out, in a manner that is not visible.

It is important that no child car seats involved in accidents continue to be used. Dynamic testing in certified laboratories that simulate road accidents have shown that certain parts of the child car seats, already subject to stress, may fail more easily.

Moreover, used child car seats often come without instruction
manuals, a mandatory aspect to guarantee correct installation
and use.
