Child Seat Ruling

Understand the Swiss regulations on child seats for your vehicle...

It is mandatory throughout Switzerland that all children under the age of 12 to be strapped into child restraints (baby seats, child seats, booster seats and booster cushions), unless they measure more than 150 cm.

If a baby seat is installed on the passenger seat facing away from the traffic, the air bags must be deactivated.

Legislation stipulates that child restraints must conform to the United Nations ECE Regulation R44.03 or R44.04.

A new child seat should have the ISOFIX (International Standards Organisation FIX) logo which is a new standard for installing child seats in a quick and simple way.
