Sales of R44 car seats are coming to an end

Sales of R44 car seats are coming to an end

The UK’s Baby Products Association advises that the sales of R44 car seats (also referred to as child restraints) must cease in the UK and the European Union from 1st September 2023. This means that they can no longer be offered for sale, either online or in stores. R44 means Regulation No 44 of the Economic Commission for Europe of the United Nations (UN/ECE). 

Any R44 car seats owned beyond this date can continue to be used and are still considered to be safe. The Regulations have been updated to reflect new technology and the latest Regulation is R129.
