One of the participants on the call asked how to know when a product is an article and Dr. Estreicher indicated that the ECHA guidance provides many answers, but a few "borderline" cases remain. For example, ECHA has not yet determined whether a candle is an article or a mixture of chemicals known under REACH as a preparation. IF ECHA decides that candles are preparations then each chemical used to make the candles must be registered. (Source: FEMA, FMA)
