Is there an international standard for child seats

Yes and no, all members states of UNECE have adopted the same international standard (R129 or ECE R44), however not all countries adopt the same standards. Popular tourist destinations such as Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, much of South America and most of Asia. Our comprehensive guide provides all you need to know about travelling in UNECE countries and elsewhere in the world.
 

What is the difference between ECE R44 and R129 car seats?

R129 is a standard first introduced by the united nations in 2013 intended to make travel with babies and children safter. R129-02 was later introduced in 2017 further improving safety for high back booster seats. ECE R44/04 (often referred to as just R44) is a standard introduced by UNECE (Directive 77/541/EEC) which is being phased out by the introduction of the updated i-Size regulation.
 

Where is the child seat UN approval label (H3)

You’ll find the UN approval label on the base or back of the car seat. Look out for an orange and white label which will carry the following details

  • EC R44-04 or UN R129
  • Weight range
  • Barcode
  • Product / serial number

 Do tourists need to comply with car seat regulations?

Yes, the laws and rules of the roads for individual countries apply to anyone using them and tourists are treated the same as any other user. Car seat laws are adopted by individual countries and states to ensure the safety of children whilst travelling on the roads in the respective countries. Failure to comply with the law is likely to result in a fine and/or prosecution.

A study by the consulting firm Factum, commissioned by the Gonzalo Rodríguez Foundation and the Montevideo City Council, reveals that only 3 out of 10 children who travel by car use restraint systems.

For the study, 5,700 vehicles were observed in which children under 12 were traveling. According to the figures, only 30.8% were using child restraint systems, 46% were not wearing any safety method and 23% were wearing only a seat belt.

Nani Rodríguez, from the Gonzalo Rodríguez Foundation, said that 8 out of 10 chairs that are checked at the foundation's checkpoints are incorrectly installed.
