There is no Australian and New Zealand standard for portable seats, so we base our testing on some relevant parts of the AS/NZS 2195:1999 standard for high chairs, with a few other tests specific to portable seats.
Major failures include risk of a fall due to insufficient side and rear barriers, choking hazards from easily removed small pieces, insecure attachment to a chair or table and a harness that allows a child to stand up. Minor failures include less serious examples of major failure conditions, plus limb/finger entrapment hazards.
We also check the stability of the portable seat. If it fits to a table or chair, we check how securely it attaches and that it doesn’t move too much when pushed forwards or sideways. And if it can be used as a floor-seat, we check it doesn’t tip over.
We won’t recommend a portable seat if it has a major safety failure.

The straps store away inside the base of the seat and the tray slides into the bottom of the seat when not in use. So convenient and easy to use. Holds under 1's in safely.
Older children may fall out if they really try to toss themselves out! Front of base does sink into soft seat cushion when tray is in use. A little difficult to keep base properly clean when baby insert is in use.
Yes, I recommend this product.
