    Britax pre-2012 compliance?

    Britax has this to say on their Canadian site:

    Q. What are the new standards implemented by Transport Canada for car seats on January 1, 2012? Can I still use my BRITAX car seat if it was manufactured before January 1, 2012?
    A. Please be assured that there is no need to replace your car seat due to the new regulations. All BRITAX car seats manufactured before AND after January 1, 2012 are compliant with Transport Canada’s current dynamic test standards. For information about the new child car seat safety regulations, please visit Transport Canada’s website: http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/mediaroom/re...h145e-6605.htm.

    So does this mean that my Frontier XT, manufactured in 2010, is compliant? I tried reading the info in the pinned posts above but I'm still not sure.

    Hi There

    No, your 2010 seat is not compliant. A few Britax models were compliant in mid 2011 but nothing prior to that.
