The Ministries of Science and Technology, Transport, Industry and Trade, and Public and Security, are expected to jointly issue a circular to fight imitation crash helmets, most of which are unsafe fashionable helmets but widely available on the market at cheap prices.

Under the Circular, manufacturers or importers of helmets must register their business and product quality with competent authorities, obtain a Conformity with Regulation (CR) certification, and attach a CR stamp to their products before launching them on the market.

The Circular targets to help consumers to differentiate genuine and safe helmets from imitation ones, which fail to meet quality standards and safety regulations.  

Once the Circular is issued, all imitation helmets on the market will be handled by competent agencies./.
