ARSC conference 2016

EXTENDED ABSTRACT: The recent regulatory shift regarding the motorcycle helmets both approved for sale and approved for use on the road in Australia is likely to lead to significant change. It is now possible to import, sell and use UNECE Regulation 22.05 Protective helmets and their visors for drivers and passengers of motor cycles and mopeds as well as AS/NZS 1698 Protective helmets for vehicle users on the roads in Australia. The question for the Australian consumer is will these significant changes produce simpler, more understandable regulation and cheaper and safer helmets.
