Updated SATRA RSLs now available
The March 2023 RSLs are available to download from the SATRA website.
The March 2023 issues of SATRA’s Restricted Substances Lists (RSLs) are now available to download from the SATRA website. SATRA has published three RSLs which contain information about restricted substances that are applicable to materials typically used in footwear, furniture and consumer products. These documents concisely explain the legislation relevant to each individual substance, list the maximum permitted concentration of each substance, and include references to the national, international and SATRA test methods that can be utilised to assess conformity with the legislation.
SATRA revises these RSLs every six months to include any changes to restricted substances legislation that are relevant to the footwear, furniture and consumer products sectors – such as amendments to REACH (Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006) Annex XVII, UK REACH and the POP Regulation (EU) 2019/1021. The main change from the previous versions is the inclusion of California Assembly Bill No.1817, which restricts perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). This legislation comes into force from 1st January 2025 and more information about restrictions applicable to fluorinated substances will be discussed in more detail in future SATRA Bulletin articles.
