Booster seat requirements in France

I know the Swiss regs (less than 12 and 1.5m requires a booster seat) but are there similar restrictions in France?

(googling doesn't seem to give very definitive answers)

Thanks

Re: Booster seat requirements in France

I would still use a seat, for the safety benefits, re. seat belt correctly fitting.
Even from Basel, you have to drive a short distance on Swiss roads, anyway.
I don't see an advantage to not using it.

Wrongly or rightly, I assume to Q. relates to your requirements.

AA list the requirements in the pdf in the link below but I cannot vouch for their accuracy. See page 2

Under French law, children up to the age of 10 must travel in an approved child seat or
restraint, adapted to their age and size. European regulations classify child restraints in five
different groups according to the child's weight.

It's a jigsaw puzzle of adults, kids, bums & seats for a short trip over the border and I just need to understand my constraints
