Entry 50 of Annex XVII to REACH - Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs)

Can you give examples of articles that are covered by or excluded from Entry 50 (paragraphs 5 and 6) of Annex XVII to REACH: Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in articles supplied to the general public?
This document aims at providing a guideline concerning the interpretation of the scope of the restriction provisions in paragraphs 5 and 6 of entry 50 of Annex XVII to REACH Regulation (EU) No 1907/2006 on polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in articles supplied to the general public. It has been drawn up to (i) clarify certain terms that define the scope of the restriction (e.g. “plastic and rubber component”, “direct as well as prolonged contact or short-term repetitive contact with human skin or the oral cavity", "normal/reasonably foreseeable conditions of use") and (ii) provide non-exhaustive lists of article types which fall within (or out of) the scope of the restriction.
