The regulations do not contain any direct requirements for goods, but may have consequences for how goods are designed, e.g. wheelchair ramps (Chapter 3, § 12) and run-off guard rails (Chapter 6, § 5).

The regulations also contain requirements for the design of signs and markings (Annexes 3 and 4). These requirements are the direct implementation of Council Directive 92/58/EEC of 24 June 1992 on the minimum requirements for the provision of safety and/or health signs at work.
Furthermore, there are requirements for the marking of racking systems (Chapter 3, § 29). This requirement stems from previously notified regulations (see question 9).
