The Federal Aviation Administration is moving forward with new rules for the child restraint systems on planes, similar to those devices used for young children in cars.
The new labeling requirements for in-flight child restraint systems would correct four errors made in a previous version of the rule, the agency announced Monday.
The FAA loosened the regulations to allow more child restraint systems in planes in 2006.
This made way for the FAA to approve a child restraint device manufactured by AmSafe, which is currently the only such device approved by the agency under this rule.
"The intended effect of the final rule was to increase the number of [child restraint system] options that are available for children to use on aircraft, while maintaining high standards for certification and approval," the agency wrote.
But the FAA recently found several minor errors in the rule that it is now correcting.
The rule changes goes into effect immediately.
