MET bicycle helmets are tested and certified according to different standards and procedures depending on which country in the world they will be sold in. Example: A MET helmet sold in Finland does carry the CE certification label applicable in Europe. It does not carry any other certification label such as the australian QAS, the japanese JIS, the north-american CPSC which means it would be illegal to sell it to Australia, North America, Japan, and more generally outside Europe. The opposite is true too. A MET helmets sold in Australia only carries the QAS certification label applicable in Australia, etc. Most consumers are not aware of this issue and can, when purchasing online, found themselves with a helmet that is actually illegal to use where they live.
