Back in March, we spoke to Joie to discover the new features of their new infant carrier, i-Jemini, and to find out more about the latest car seat safety regulation, ECE R129.

So, what exactly does ECE R129 mean?

The ECE R129/03 safety standard is the most advanced and up-to-date child safety regulation in the UK & Europe. It requires rigorous side impact testing with advanced dummy testing and now fits children in their car seat based on height rather than weight – which is a lot safer for them (and intuitive for parents!)

i-Size certified is an enhancement of ECE R129, which means that it’s guaranteed to fit correctly into any i-Size vehicle, making it easier to select a compatible seat and install in your vehicle.
