Racing harnesses manufactured for motorsport in countries, or for racing
series that fall under the FIA regulation, must carry the appropriate FIA
labels. FIA-labelled belts are valid for five [5] years from last day of the
year of manufacture unless regulated differently by the sanctioning body
of the motorsport in which you are participating. The last year of FIA
validity is indicated on the label. Each separate strap assembly is labelled.

7. Seat life:
The usable life of an FIA homologated seat will
be 5 years from the date of manufacture indicated on the
seat label.
An extension of up to 2 further years may be
authorised where the seat has been returned to the
manufacturer for re-validation. Extensions will be
indicated by an additional label affixed to the seat
identifying the date on which the seat eligibility certificate
and validated by the manufacturer's quality inspector
stamp.
