There are currently two legal standards for child car seats in Europe:
- ECE R44/04
ECE R44 is a regulation that covers child restraint systems from Group 0 for new-born infants to Group 3 for booster car seats for children up to 36 kg (80 lbs.)
- ECE R129
ECE R129 (also known as i-Size) is a new standard for group 0/0+/1 seats that are necessary for smaller children
