If it has a recognised compliance sticker you can use it. NSW, and I think all other states, now accepts foreign standards stickers. Helmets in Oz used to be a dog's breakfast of conflicting standards and rules but they sorted it all out about two years ago by recognising the standards of other countries.

With respect to the stickers. Helmets with a EU certification can be used since approximately 1 year in all states of Australia. Some manufacturer do not have a sticker at all. After the EU standards a Sticker is not required. Shoei helmets have a EU compliance Lable at the helmet step and that is accepted. But be careful some Police officer do not know about this regulation. There has been just recently a court case where somebody did get a fine for not having a sticker and with the support from a Lawyer he has won the case in court against the police. I think the lawyer was it was Blackburner  but I am not sure. It was one of this Lawyers specialised in the support of Bike rider.
Hope this information helps.

I think that the lawyer would have been Maurice Blackburn.  They do a lot of work for the motorcycling community in general.  The problem is the cost and inconvenience of having to fight because the people that are enforcing the rules don't fully understand them.  This is not a slight on our constabulary - quite the contrary, they are only doing their job but the notification processes don't seem to filter down to the foot soldiers properly and the regulations (in the past) have been so confusing that they are struggling to keep up.  Sometimes it is open to interpretation and we know that that can cause issues as well.

I think that it is interesting that a helmet can be the safest in the world with all the compliance stickers and still be dropped a hundred times rendering the helmet next to useless yet something like the above is less likely to be dropped (and if it were, it would be noticeable) and offer similar if not better protection for the rider - not to mention that it also adds an extra layer of protection for the rider as I would imagine that this would be a skin over an already existing helmet.

I understand the need for compliance because some of the helmets that can be purchased from china are no better than putting a scarf on your head (or a pushbike helmet).  Some offer little or no protection to the rider from new.

Nice to know Crash, on another note.. I was an MRA member when they brought in some helmet laws in the late 70s.  The people making the laws ignored just about all bike associations' advice & it ended up with some of the best helmets in the world being non-compliant & some cruddy helmets (eg Nova, pressed plastic & likely to break apart after a metre drop to the ground) being acceptable.  Some of my first experiences with authorities' attitude to bikers & knowledge of bike riding.
Personally, I would rather ride lidless, was able to for a number of years in NSW, but I know this a divisive issue.  Reasons for & against it.

Helmet stickers are well explained by Motorbikewriter here... if anyone is interested.

I would prefer my helmet to slide across the ground. I'd be concerned the bitumen would dig into the leather.

Not so sure you would have to worry about that - the bitumen is quite abrasive and would take the leather off in a split second (just like it does to any exposed part of your body).  I suspect that there is a carbon, fiberglass or plastic shell underneath that would provide the necessary protection.

MRA - They did some good things for motorcycling back in the day - including the first toy run if my memory serves me correctly 🙂
