Seiko Epson Corporation has received the Oeko-Tex Association's Eco Passport certification for sustainable textile chemicals, and is also the first company in Japan to receive the certification. The certification was obtained through the Nissenken Quality Evaluation Centre, the only certification institute in Japan for issuing the Eco Passport certificate.

Eco Passport is a new testing and certification mechanism that textile chemical manufacturers and suppliers can use to demonstrate that their colourants, auxiliaries, finishing assistants, and other textile chemicals can be used in safe and sustainable textile production.

The Eco Passport initiative seeks to confirm compliance with restrictions enacted in April 2016 on the use of certain arylamines and to ensure the safety and sustainability of chemicals, colourants, and auxiliaries upstream in the textile industry supply chain.

The products for which the company has received the certification include the UltraChrome DS ink for the SC-F60, SC-F62, SC-F70, SC-F71, SC-F72, and SC-F92 series' of SureColor dye-sublimation transfer printers, as well as for UltraChrome DG ink and auxiliary fabric preparation products for the SureColor SC-F2000 garment printer.
