What is ISOFIX & why is testing required?
ISOFIX provides easy installation of compatible child car seats with the anchorage fixing points located at the base of seats. This offers alternative installation of child car seats and removes the need for using the vehicle’s seat belt to safety secure the child safety seat to the vehicle seat.
The anchorage points for the ISOFIX attachments are required to be tested to Regulation 14 standards in order to ensure safety of the connection between the baby/child car seat and the vehicle’s seat – in the equivalent manner in which seat belt anchorage points are tested to ensure the strength of the seat belt’s anchorage points.
