CAN I USE THE VEST IN AUSTRALIA OR NEW ZEALAND?

For residents of Australia and New Zealand: Unfortunately, the RideSafer Travel Vest is not currently approved for use in Australia nor is it labeled with the New Zealand “S” mark for use in New Zealand.

For those traveling to Australia or New Zealand:

  • New Zealand Transport Agency says “if you’re bringing a child restraint with you into New Zealand it must comply with one of the following approved standards… • the American standard FMVSS 213…”
  • A couple of travel sources say, Australia only permits seats that are approved by Australia or New Zealand, even for short term visitors. Enforcement among tourists is unknown, though, all around enforcement has been increased since 2010. Rumor has it the requirement “is enforced in Victoria (Melbourne) and New South Wales (Sydney) even if your seat is considered perfectly safe in the US or Europe.” We’ve been unable to find an official website to substantiate enforcement for tourists.
