The new Regulation 129 came into force on July 9 2013.  It includes a new regulation classification method for child restraints based on the child’s height and age.  The most significant change is that a child of less than 15 months MUST ALWAYS be rearward facing.

The initial implementation of Regulation 129 will be only applicable to ISOFIX child restraints with an internal harness.  Future phases will apply to all child seats.
