VIETNAM: Deadline for Cut in Formaldehyde and Aromatic Amines Levels in All Textiles Postponed Until 2019
The deadline for cutting the level of formaldehyde and AZO dye-derived aromatic amines in all textile products sold in the country has been extended until 1 January 2019. It was previously scheduled to be enforced from 1 May this year.
Once implemented, manufacturers will have to visibly demonstrate their compliance with the new legislation (as detailed in Circular No. 21/2017/TT-BCT) by attaching Regulation Conformity labels on all relevant products.
