    What do you mean by mandated?

    SA has amended their standard to allow for isofix (as DJ Nette said it includes the top tether strap as well as the isofix point). As far as I am aware that is all that is needed for manufacturers to go ahead and make seats that comply.

    Yeah.. my teeny dd is almost out of her capsule at nearly 14 months old!! Yes you read that right. I was hoping for a new seat with isofix.. she's probably has 3cm or 4cm to go before she is at the shoulder height.
    Now to research which seat is best for her since she's so little.

    We have the opposite problem, I was researching because DD (5 months) is almost out of her capsule and we have just bought a new car. I would still like her to rear face for quite awhile yet, so need to find a larger rear facing seat.

    We just got a new car too!
    How funny. .I am actually really wanting to turn her ff... Because she's desperate to sit up and look around. A few months ago I tried her in every seat that was 6months-4 years and she was far too small!! I'm hoping she might do better now!

    I suggest you head to your local baby shop and try bub in every seat! That's what I did and will do again very soon. Then you'll know which one works best.

    The standards have been altered but they haven't actually been passed in parliament yet.

    It doesn't have to be passed by Parliament. The relevant Minister can just issue a notice.

    You're right in that the 2013 Standard is still voluntary, but that doesn't prevent manufacturers making seats that comply. It just prevents the requirement that they do.

    I don't know about "passing through Parliament" I can't find any info on that but the standard allowing ISOFIX came into effect in June 2013. Here is some great info on the introduction and how it will work from CREP http://www.crep.com.au/ISOFIX COMPAT...restraints.pdf

    A good budget option is the infasecure Neon. My tall 11 month old has ages to reach the FF line. It doesn't have all the bells & whistles of the more expensive seats but at $118 on sale, it's a great seat.

    They don't need to be, the legislation only specifies AS/NZS 1754 needs to be complied with. No further amendments to the legislation are required.

    I'm at work at the moment but can go into more detail when I get home, if needed.

    Would love it if you could. Don't mind being proved wrong.

    Check out ss 104 & 105 of the ACL. There is no need for any change in the standard to be passed by Parliament.

    The Minister just issues a notice under the ACL.
