REACH - Guidance on requirements for substances in articles

The document assists producers and importers of articles in identifying whether they have obligations under REACH; in particular in relation to registration and notification according to Article 7, and in relation to article supply chain communication according to Article 33.

If you are in doubt whether or not a material is an article you may use the indicative questions on page 24 of the guidance document. These questions support the evaluation of the importance of the chemical composition versus the shape/surface/design in relation to the function and thus facilitate the application of the article definition.

EAACA experts on REACH answered these questions. These answers clearly indicate that blocks, elements and reinforced beams and also crushed AAC are “articles” according to the definition of REACH.
