REACH and Blanket Declarations for Single-Product Suppliers

Question: If a company only supplies a customer a single type of product (e.g. computers), can they provide a “blanket” Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical (REACH) Regulation declaration for all related goods, or should they provide individual declarations?

Answer: In the provided example, a company could use a blanket REACH declaration that would cover computers and related goods such as keyboards and mice. However, blanket declarations may not be a good idea. A more specific declaration would help prevent inaccuracy and allow for a standalone declaration in the future if the company in question expanded its offerings or was asked to supply a one-time order of a different product.
