The Vietnam Ministry of Industry and Trade (MOIT) has drafted a new regulation on use of azo dyes and formaldehyde content in textile and apparel products sold in the country. The new regulation stipulates limits and inspection of content of formaldehyde and of aromatic amines derived from azo colourants in textile and apparel products.

Under the new regulation, formaldehyde in textile products for children under 36 months of ages should not exceed 30 mg/kg, in textile products in direct skin contact, the limit is 75 mg/kg, while in textile products without direct skin contact, the limit is 300 mg/kg. In case of aromatic amines, the limit is 30 mg/kg in all the three categories.

This regulation applies to all textile manufacturers and importers in Vietnam and state inspection is carried out by organisations that are appointed and authorised by the Minister of Trade and Industry. (AR)
