The Environment Canada and Health Canada have issued a final screening assessment for textile dyes.
The final screening assessment of azo disperse dyes specifies that all 73 textile dyes should be considered not harmful, as defined by section 64 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (Cepa, 1999).
In effect, the authorities will take no further action under the national Chemicals Management Plan (CMP) in relation to these substances.
The assessment was released on March 2017.
