REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals) Regulation came into effect in June 2007 to streamline and improve the legislative framework for chemicals in the European Union (EU). REACH also established the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) to manage chemical substance obligations under REACH and to ensure compliance among Member States.
RoHS, also known as Lead-Free, stands for Restriction of Hazardous Substances. RoHS, also known as Directive 2002/95/EC, originated in the European Union and restricts the use of six hazardous materials found in electrical and electronic products.

What is the definition of article in REACH?
An article is defined in REACH as ‘an object which during production is given a special shape, surface or design which determines its function to a greater degree than does its chemical composition’. Articles have a special status under REACH. Articles themselves do not have to be registered.
What are the obligations for Electronic component manufacturers under REACH with regards to articles?
The identification of a substance as a Substance of Very High Concern (SVHC) and its inclusion in the Candidate List can trigger certain legal obligations for the importers, electronic component manufacturers and suppliers of an article that contains such a substance. One of the main requirements of the REACH regulation is to communicate information on chemicals (SVHC) up and down the supply chain.
