R phrase and S phrase


Explanation:
The R probably means that there is an applicable Regulation, the S probably means there is something Similar but not directly applicable. I suggest retaining the letters R and S, and also the word "phrase", even though it doesn't mean exactly the same thing in English. Hope it helps.
