Who we are

Child Car Seats is an initiative of the Child Restraint Evaluation Program (CREP), a consortium of government agencies and motorist organisations who share a common interest in improving safety for children travelling in vehicles. CREP aims to provide consumers with information to help choose and use safe child car seats and to apply commercial and public consumer pressure on car seat manufacturers to only market seats that perform well beyond the requirements of the Australian Standard. CREP also provides feedback to the Australian Standard Committee on child car seats, to help improve the Standard.

CREP provides consumers with independent and consistent information on the levels of child protection from injury in a crash provided by child car seats and the ease with which they can be used correctly.

CREP is a partnership between:

  • Transport for NSW (TfNSW)
  • The National Roads & Motorists' Association
  • Royal Automobile Club of Victoria (RACV)
  • Transport Accident Commission (TAC)
  • Royal Automobile Club of WA (RACWA) and
  • VicRoads.
