First Aid Kit

zur deutschsprachigen Version
to the German version

A First Aid kit that is suitable for wound treatment must be carried in motor vehicles, and hence also on two-wheeled motor vehicles at all times. It must be kept in a robust dust-proof container and protected from dirt. The driver is responsible for complying with this regulation.

The aforementioned attributes constitute the legal minimum requirement. There is no legal obligation to carry First Aid kits which correspond to Austrian Standard (ÖNORM) V 5101. However, it is recommended to carry such kits as they include all objects that are essential for primary medical care.

PLEASE NOTE
There are dates of expiry for gauze bandages. Therefore, it is recommended to check First Aid kits regularly.
