Azo Dyes – the State of Compliance

TiAzo dyes are a class of synthetic dyes used as colorants in many consumer goods, including textiles, apparel, leather, cosmetics, and even food. A number of azo dyes are listed as carcinogens, and many markets, including the EU and the US, have imposed legal bans or restrictions on their content in items that come in direct contact with the skin.

Despite the regulations, the state of product compliance on azo dyes is far from perfect. Among products tested in QIMA labs, over 5% routinely exceed the allowed azo dye content. In 2014-2015, over 200,000 apparel items across 37 product lines were recalled in Australia, after the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) discovered carcinogenic dyes in imported clothing during a random screening.

Basic facts for brands and manufacturers:

  • What products are at risk for failing regulations on azo dyes?

    All textile and leather products that come into contact with human skin.

  • Which markets have banned azo dyes?

    The EU, China, Japan, India, Vietnam have already banned them; the US and Australia are considering a ban.

  • Whose responsibility is it to ensure product compliance?

    It is up to the importer to communicate the requirements to factories and vendors, test source materials, and only approve compliant shipments.
