United States of America

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) defines the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS). FMVSS 213 governs the performance and some design criteria for child restraint systems made for children who weigh up to 80 pounds.

Carfoldio must certify that the mifold Grab-and-Go booster seats sold in the USA meet Federal Motor Vehicle Standards FMVSS 213 Child Restraint Systems. Carfoldio tests the mifold to provide that certification and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs annual compliance testing to verify that this certification is accurate.
