Entry 43 of Annex XVII to REACH - Azocolorants and Azodyes
Do sofas and chairs (e.g. garden chairs/sun loungers’ type) fall under the scope of the restriction entry 43 of Annex XVII to REACH?
Yes. Garden furniture made of textile or leather is covered by entry 43 as people who use them can be in light clothing (even in bathing suits or bare) and “direct and prolonged contact with human skin” is very likely. There is even a direct reference to chair covers in the list of examples of articles covered by the restriction.
