In Germany, according to the comprehensive § 30 of the Food and Commodities Law, it is forbidden to manufacture or distribute commodities in such a way, that ""if used properly or as anticipated, they may constitute a danger to health on account of their material composition, particular through toxicological substances or impurities."" Because of that, the German BGVV (federal institute for risk assessment) strongly advices in view of the precautionary principle, not to use these disperse dyes in products that come into contact with skin, because of their allergenic properties.

Defined Restrictions:
Prohibition from a precautionary principle
