REACH Implementation Project 3.8
The RIP 3.8 clarifies issues such as the need to consider delivery devices separately to any preparation, as well as the need to consider containers and packaging as articles.
One can therefore have an article in a preparation inside an article that is supplied in a separate article!  It is not surprising that RIP 3.8 makes reference to the need for industry standards and guidance.
