Rules for the use of child seats are based on the same European Directive in all EU countries.
Types of child safety devices
Which child safety device should you use? Below is a small overview with the answer to that question.
- weight less than 13 kg – a baby car seat
- weight between 9 and 18 kg – a child car seat
- weight from 15 kg – a booster seat
Also pay attention to how the manufacturer prescribes use. All child restraints must be approved according to ECE Regulation 44/03 or 44/04.
In a seat with an airbag, children may not be transported in a (baby) car seat placed against the direction of travel. This is only allowed, if the airbag is deactivated. Whether that disabling is possible and how to do it is in the car’s owner’s manual.
