AS/NZS 4370

The AS/NZS 4370 provides a safe restraint guide for children with disabilities and/or medical conditions who are required to use modified approved child car seats, imported specialty seats, postural harnesses, behavioural harnesses, or harnesses allowing children to lie across the back seat to travel safely in a vehicle. This Standard is referenced in the Queensland Road Rules and children 7 years and under must be seated according to this Standard and the prescriber's flow chart must be followed.
