​FIRA publishes Reach Users Guide

The Furniture Industry Research Association recognises the increasing importance, and impact, of the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals Regulations (REACH) on the furniture industry. As additions to the Restricted Chemicals and Substances of Very High Concerns (SVHC) lists increases, restricting the number of chemicals available for use in products, the effect on the furniture industry is increasing. To address this the Furniture Industry Research Association has published a REACH Users Guide for its members.

The REACH Users Guide offers readers guidance to what REACH is, the obligations placed on a business, whether a manufacturer, importer or retailer. And the steps you may need to follow to demonstrate your products comply.
