Are there standards for child seats?

February 25, 2022

Child restraints are not directly mentioned in J3026, GVS, or NFPA because they are covered by FMVSS 213, which is a federal standard that others cannot supersede. This means if a manufacturer is offering an integrated seat, the seat must be tested to both the SAE J3026 (adult) and FMVSS 213 (child) restraint requirements.
