Default ECE sticker

Just bought one of these (for the wife obviously)

http://www.ladiesatmandp.com/proddet...prod=5G03II029

Can't find an ECE sticker - so is it not uk legal? The only code I can find on it is E3 052186/J - 177072 - so should I be sending it back? Will be a bit ****ed off after waiting a week for it if it isnt road legal. Their policy states no helmet returns which is rubbish under distance selling regulations (I hope)

Just found this on a website so appears its ok legally- though obviously I wont be wearing it myself.


"First off you should see an E in a circle, followed by the approving country: E1 is Germany, E3 is Italy and E11 is England etc. Then you're looking for a serial number: this should start 05 if it's ECE R22.05 compliant."

That is a standard policy for all M/C lids, distance or not, you take one out the shop and they wont take it back unless its found to have a manufacturing fault, a very rare occasion

Different if you buy it in the shop, they can't refuse to accept it back from an internet purchase - its the law.

IIRC if it doesn't meet the BS or ECE regs, it's not a legal a motorcycle helmet and so can't be sold as one. Anyway, have a look here:

http://www.dft.gov.uk/pgr/roads/vehi...isorsandgo4563

Quote:
All road legal motorcycle helmets sold in the UK must conform to ECE 22-05 or the older British Standard 6658 (categorised as Type A (blue label) or Type B (green label). These stickers are normally located on the back of the helmet and will also include a batch identity number. ECE 22-05 helmets are tested by BSI, and have the BSI Kitemark on the label. If it doesn't have a sticker or kitemark, don't buy it, it may be an import and will not be legal on British roads.

It appear to be legal as the E3-05 is equivalent to ece 22-05, though it is going back or going on ebay because I ordered wrong size XS instead of a medium.

Just read your post properly - its obviously an import and not stamped up properly so a bit dubious legally. Will just add some ammunition if they start getting awkward about returning it. I am sure I ordered the right size but the email I got does say XS

I would really think twice about that helmet anyway. Absolutely no protection for the lower half of the face. I wouldn't wear that style of helmet.

Won't let the missus on the bike without her leathers and (decent) full face helmet.
