    Stricter requirements for ETAD companies

    During ETAD’s General Assembly in May 2016, member companies approved unanimously a stricter version of the association’s Code of Ethics. In its new version, the Code of Ethics requires that all dyes sold by ETAD’s members for consumer applications have to comply with limits for heavy metals, potential aromatic amines from reductive cleavage and other organic impurities.

    Additionally, it is now required that members register as a member of the UN Global Compact, or issue an own binding Code of Conduct, embracing as a minimum the standards and values of the UN Global Compact.

    Companies will have a transition period of two years from the General Assembly decision to implement the new Code of Ethics (i.e., until May 2018).

    The new text of the Code of Ethics can be read here. A quick reference for the corresponding implementation of the new impurity criteria is also available.
