CHILD SEAT REQUIREMENTS IN EUROPE
Regulations and seat fittings in Europe for child seats and restraints differ from those in Australia.
The European regulation and mounting system is known as ISOFIX and the seats in Australia do not have ISOFIX mountings on them and will therefore not be acceptable for the European regulations and vehicles.
You will need to choose a seat according to the child’s age and weight.
In France all children under 10 years must be in a child restraint, based on their weight.
