Child Restraint Laws

Australian car seat standards and laws

In November 2009, National car restraint laws came into affect regarding child restraints. Child restraint fitting now offer a service where we will perform an audit of your child restraint to check and ensure that it is compliant with the current requirements (small fee).

Specifically, the law requires children –

  • Up to the age of six months to be restrained in a rearward facing child restraint (e.g. infant capsule);
  • From six months until the age of four to be restrained in either a rearward or forward facing child restraint (e.g. child safety seat); and
  • From four years until the age of eight to be restrained in either a forward facing child restraint or booster seat restrained by a correctly adjusted and fastened seatbelt or child safety harness.
  • Children up to four years of age must be restrained in the rear of the vehicle (where the vehicle has two or more rows of seats);

By specifying the type of restraint to be used at different ages and where children must be seated in a vehicle, the new laws will reduce the risk of injury caused by the use of unsuitable restraints for a child’s size.
