Global agreement reached on the UN Regulation on child restraints systems for car seats

September 14, 2018

June 2018 – In June, Working Party 29 of UNECE adopted the third and final phase of Regulation 129 (R129) on enhanced child restraint systems.

As all three phases of the regulation have been adopted, the old R44 standard must be progressively phased out. Since 1 September 2017, integral Isofix seats can be no longer approved under R44, and this will be the case also for non-integral Group 2 and Group 2/3 seats from 1 September 2019.

UNECE published a useful leaflet resuming the adopted rules that must be applied by 1 September 2019.
