New Vietnam rules for formaldehyde & azo dyes in textiles

Oct '15
The Vietnamese government has released a new regulation that specifies requirements on permitted limit of formaldehyde and azo dyes contents in textile products that are manufactured, imported and traded in Vietnam.

“The new draft circular will supersede circular no. 32/2009/tt-bct dated November 5, 2009 and becomes effective in February 2016,” a press release from SGS stated.

The earlier circular temporarily gave the regulated acceptable limits for the content of formaldehyde and content of aromatic amines which can be released from azo dyes in reduction conditions in textile and apparel products.

The new draft circular states the same permitted limits of formaldehyde and azo dyes content in textile products, but further specifies requirements on sampling methods.

This has been done by referring to updated international test method standards and provides relevant quality management requirements.

Textile products that fall within the scope of the restriction are listed in Annexure 1 of the new draft circular.

The restrictions do not apply to untreated yarn, untreated fabric, fabrics imported for processing export products and textile products in transit or stored in custom's warehouses.

Other goods include textile products temporarily imported for re-export and types of products made from textile materials used in industrial production.

All textile products that are imported, distributed and marketed in Vietnam are required to provide a certificate issued by an accredited testing laboratory to ensure conformity in accordance to the regulation. (AR)
