  • [01] Seat belts in buses and coaches and airbag labelling to protect children

  • [01] Seat belts in buses and coaches and airbag labelling to protect children

    Today the Commission approved amendments to three directives relating to seat belts, seat belt anchorages and seat strength for minibuses and medium and large coaches. The key provisions of the directives stipulate that manufacturers will have to fit 3-point seat belts in all seating positions of minibuses (vehicles of less than 3.5 tonnes) and at least 2-point belts and energy absorbing seats in all large coaches in order for their vehicles to benefit from free circulation in the Community. For mid size coaches manufacturers will have the choice whether to fit 3-point belts or 2-point belts and energy absorbing seats. The proposals cover other subjects, including airbag warning labels and head restraints.
