Default Racing seat noob question

How do I go about figuring out what seats are legal for what forms of racing? Should I be looking for some sort of stamp or seal? Is there a list somewhere of manufacturers/models that are 'approved?'

Thanks for the help.

Read the rules for the racing organization that you will be participating with. Simple!

+1 read the rules. It will tell you what you need. Don't automatically assume that an FIA seat will be accepted. It would suck to find out that you spent $1k on a seat and rails just to find out that it's not necessary and you could have saved yourself $800...or worse, they don't accept it at all...
