This question comes up periodically, but I decided to start a new thread instead of leeching onto an old and stale one. I looked up the QLD road rules here http://www.legislation.qld.gov.au/LEGISLTN/CURRENT/T/TrantOpRURR99.pdf. I can not find any statements explicitly requiring that a helmet must have a standards sticker. The only statement about admissibility is on p. 232 that a rider must wear an ‘approved helmet’ which is explained on p. 330 as a helmet which ‘complies with AS 1698–1988; or (b) another standard the chief executive considers is at least equal to that standard.’ Now, I can easily obtain the list of all helmets approved to the AS standard from standardmark. As far as I can tell then as long as my helmet is on the list it is legal to use. Maybe someone with a better understanding of the law or road rules could point to an obvious fault in this argument? I have surely overlooked something.
