Articles - Requirements for Producers, Importers and Distributors

Cover of the brochure "Articles - Requirements for Producers, Importers and Distributors"

In the case of articles, questions arise under the REACH Regulation about how to differentiate between the term article and the terms substance and mixture. In addition, companies that produce or supply articles have obligations to inform their recipients, who can be processors, distributors, users of articles or consumers. In certain cases, they also have obligations towards the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA). This brochure provides information on the various obligations of producers, importers and suppliers of articles under the REACH Regulation and provides a number of answers to the question of when an object is a substance or a mixture and when it is an article.

Note: Please notice that REACH Info 6 is under revision. This comprises particularly chapter 7 and elaborations on assembled articles.
