Vietnam – Issuance of Circular to Withdraw the Inspection of Formaldehyde and Aromatic Amines in Textile Products
Vol. 935 | November 09, 2016
The Vietnam Ministry of Trade and Industry recently issued Circular 23/2016/TT-BCT to replace Circular 37/2015/TT-BCT on permitted limits of content of formaldehyde and aromaticamines released from Azo dyes in textile products. The abolishment of this circular will come into force on 26 Nov 2016.
After the effective date, the inspection of formaldehyde and aromatic amines in textile product is no longer required.
The decision was made in response to feedback from domestic textile and garment companies that indicated the regulation was creating hurdles for them.
