    Which helmets are legal in which states?
    Another problem with helmet certification in Australia is the States have there own requirements that often clash. A key problem is that many organisations are involved, but there is no overall coordination by one governing body to ensure consistency across Australia.


    The Australian Consumer Law 2011, requires that any motorbike helmet supplied to the market must meet the Commonwealth mandatory standard (Consumer Protection Notice No.9) which is based on AS 1698-1988. However, Road Rules around the country now require that when using roads, a rider must wear a helmet in compliance with AS/NZS 1698:2006, a completely revised Standard with different test methods. Road Rules in some areas also include requirements for a "sticker" to aid Police enforcement.


    Northern Territory & Queensland simply require "compliance with AS/NZS 1698:2006" but with no additional "sticker"requirement.


    New South Wales Road Rules were changed without warning in February 2010 and now demand that an approved helmet complies with at least one version of AS/NZS 1698 and also "has an identifying mark from a body accredited or approved by the Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand certifying compliance with an above standard". As a result, the helmets of thousands of NSW riders were made retrospectively illegal on NSW roads on February 2010.


    ACT, Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia & Western Australia: A helmet that is legal for road use under the new NSW Road Rules is illegal to use in the these States according to their State laws!

    Police in the ACT are instructed to look for a helmet that "has applied to it the certification trade mark of which the Standards Association of Australia".

    In Victoria, the police are told to look for a helmet that is "marked with an official standards mark certifying compliance with the relevant Standard". In Tasmania, the helmet must bear "the Australian Standards Mark", in South Australia the helmet must bear "the certification mark of the Standards Association of Australia", and in Western Australia must carry "a sticker issued by Standards Australia".

    The problem? None of these exist! Standards Australia was broken up and sold to private buyers in December 2003 and has not issued any stickers or markings since then. Technically, it is impossible to buy any helmet you can legally use on the road in these States. This only touches on some of the inconsistencies with ensuring a helmet is legal. For a more comprehensive list, visit http://www.roadrider.com.au/special-...ate-of-helmets and read "State of Helmets". Written in 2011, many Road Rules have changed since which have further confused the situation. The ACCC has recently commenced a Review of the mandatory Standard in addition to managing recalls from the Australian marketplace of a number of helmets Certified by JAS-ANZ accredited certifiers.


    Which is the best helmet standard?

    This is a valid question. Regarded by many as the gold standard, the Snell helmet standard was criticised after claims that Snell-approved helmets were far too stiff in the outer shell and could cause more brain injuries as a result.11

    Generally, helmet standards do a reasonable job of protecting the head, both in rich and poor nations.13 But none of the standards are up-to-date with current research, and few have incorporated recommendations that were made more than a decade ago.


    In the course of writing this article, we spoke to Guy Stanford, the Australian Motorcycle Council Helmets Committee Chair. He believes the European motorcycle helmet Regulation is definitely a cut above the average, because it's motorbike-specific, has higher impact attenuation, a valid chin-bar test and an oblique impact test. The problem in Australia is finding a European-approved helmet that complies with the Australian standard too.

    Although the guides identified below state that only helmets that meet the Australian Standard AS 1698 or the Australian / New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 1698 may be worn by Victorian riders, the law has changed and helmets that meet the ECE 22.05 standard can now be worn in Victoria.
    ECE 22.05 standard also legal in Queensland > http://www.tmr.qld.gov.au/Safety/Que...oad-rules.aspx
