The government has announced that existing child car booster seats will not be affected by new rules coming into force on 1 March.
By March, new rules are being introduced across Europe that will change how backless booster seats – booster cushions – are made.
The Department for Transport (DfT) says the new rules mean that manufacturers will not be allowed to introduce new models of backless booster seats for children below the height of 125cm or weighing less than 22kg.
The change will not affect, however, existing models of seats or cushions – and does not mean that they are unsafe or illegal.
Parents are still being encouraged to make sure they know the rules for using child car seats.
The change to the technical standards means that the range of products available on the market is better suited for younger children, says Department for Transport.
