The Canada Departments of the Environment and of Health have issued a notice proposing that, after assessing 33 azo basic dyes, which are found in an array of products including cosmetics and hair dyes, just 14 warrant further monitoring. Because human and environmental exposures to the dyes are regarded as low, they do not meet statutory toxicity criteria. Still, monitoring is recommended because some of the substances have been identified as having a high potential of carcinogenicity or genotoxicity. The draft screening assessments will be open for public comment until September 24, 2014. See Canada Gazette, July 26, 2014.
