CSA Certification

I bought a CCM 1052 Tacks helmet 5 years ago. The CSA certification sticker fell off, so I don't know when it expires. Does anyone know how long the CSA certification is? Thanks.

To the best of my knowledge, CSA certification stickers don't have an expiration date on them. I've never seen any of them dated, anyways. If you're looking for a national standard to go by, HECC (USA) certification for helmets expires after five years.

If you were asking my opinion, the foam in helmets starts to harden up around the 2 - 3 year mark, reducing protection a lot. I'd image the shell starts to become more brittle after time and usage as well, though the foam will become a concern before the shell is. $50 - $150 every three years is a small price for protecting your head.

As far as any Ref may be concerned, with out the CSA cert label, the helmet is uncertified. It wont pass muster if your ever called on it in a sanctioned game.
