Development of a Seat Belt Booster Cushion Standard 831653

With a desire to devise some means of child restraint that would find wider acceptance and use than the traditional child restraint, it was decided to develop a standard for seat belt booster cushions. These are a firm seat for a child designed to improve the fit of an adult seat belt and which can readily he removed and used in any car in which the child might be required to travel.
There were difficulties with the interpretation of ECE Regulation No 44 and so it was decided to develop a separate British Standard as a second option.
The Standard that was developed recognises that the use of an adult belt to restrain a child is not ideal and gives a lower level of protection than a purpose built child restraint. Therefore, the opportunity was taken to use simplified test procedures to avoid many of the problems inherent in Regulation No 44.
