Vietnam has new rules on formaldehyde and azo dyes
Vietnam has prepared new regulations on formaldehyde and azo dyes limits in textile products manufactured, imported, distributed and sold in the country. The regulations have been issued by the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MOIT) and will come into effect on May 1, 2018. Earlier in 2017, the MOIT had published a draft regulation on the issue.

The new regulations on requirements of formaldehyde and azo dyes in textile products were released on October 23, 2017.

Earlier this year, the MOIT published a draft regulation on formaldehyde and azo dye limits. The new regulations are currently promulgated in Circular No 21/2017/TT-BCT, “the national technical regulation on the content of formaldehyde and certain aromatic amines derived from azo colourants in textile products”, and it contain specific requirements on the permitted limits for formaldehyde and azo dyes contents in textile products that are manufactured, imported, distributed and sold in the Vietnam market.

Textile products for children under three years old are allowed 30 mg/kg of formaldehyde in textile products. Textile products which come in direct skin contact can have up to 75 mg/kg of formaldehyde and textile products without direct skin contact are allowed up to 300 mg/kg formaldehyde.

Content of each aromatic amine derived from azo colourants shall not exceed 30 mg/kg for all textile products, according to new rules.

The regulations also allow exemptions for certain textile products. These include unbleached or undyed fabrics and textile products, textile products in transit or stored in warehouses for assembling, textile products temporarily imported for re-export, foreign tourist belongings temporarily entering Vietnam and commercial samples with no market value or samples for scientific study.

All textile products that are manufactured, imported, distributed and marketed in Vietnam are required to declare conformity with a CR mark at the point of sale and provide a conformity certificate either by self-declaration or by the appointed certifying organisation.
