Nueva normativa i-Size
A committee of experts designated by the UNECE (United Nations Economic Commission for Europe) was given the task of adapting Standard 44 for child safety seats to the new advances made in safety issues as well as making the seats completely compatible with cars.
As these changes were very important, they took the decision to create a new regulation, completely different from and incompatible with the current R44/04. It was given the name of “i-Size” since it was designed so that child safety seats could be classified by the height of the user instead of their age or weight.
Regulation ECE R129, also known as “i-Size”, is the new European regulation for child safety seats. It will run in parallel to the current Safety Standard R44/04 for the next few years.
