Had a look around and have not seen a similar announcement so here goes. Via Zebee Johnstone on aus.motorcycles: "There hasn't been a review of helmet standards since AS1698. The MCC has asked why someone can't wear a European or US standard helmet here for example. So a study into helmets and fit and what works has been commissioned. It is in 2 parts, one looking at helmets that are worn and one into helmets that have done their job and saved a life. The 1st part will be where a group of researchers will go to various road and dirt rider hangouts and look at helmets on heads. How comfort translates into safe fit. They figure that if you bought the thing it must be comfortable for you, so they want to see how helmet shapes and sizes and comfort compares to head shape and size and if the helmet can twist or move. They are going to look at your size and shape and measure the head in various ways and so on. So if you see the MCC stall bring your lid over and get tested. The 2nd part is about lids that have worked. They are looking for helmets that have been in crashes, that got hit, and the rider lived to tell the tale. They want to take the helmet to bits and inspect it (it will be sliced up so you won't get it back) and talk to the rider about the crash and injuries if any. So if you threw it away and headbutted something they want to talk to you. Contact via email@example.com"
