Safety Standards | US compatibility in other countries

Can you use a car seat or gear regulated for the USA in another country?

Each country has its own set of safety standards and regulations that determine the requirements for car seats and other regulated gear. Therefore, every car seat is safety and crash-tested based on the regulations of the country it is designed for. Other regulated products such as strollers, playards, bassinets, etc. are also safety tested according to the regulations of the country they are designed for.

We strongly advise against using car seats or regulated products that are designed for the US in a different country due to differences in regulations. It's essential to note that a car seat designed for a different country may not be suitable for use in the United States and may not be legal in some states.

These regulations ensure that parents have access to products that have been rigorously tested and deemed safe for use based on the standards of their country. It's crucial for consumers to be aware of the safety regulations in their own country and to choose products that comply with those standards to ensure their children's safety. This recommendation is also applicable to those traveling out of the country with their car seats and gear.
