Singapore to Prohibit Indoor Paints Containing Formaldehyde

From July 1, 2025 - Prohibition will be imposed on the sales of indoor paints containing formaldehyde. - HS licensing requirements will be imposed on paints containing formaldehyde for export or re-export purposes. - Labeling requirements will be imposed on industrial paints and paints used for outdoor applications that contain formaldehyde.

Singapore’s National Environment Agency (NEA) is currently soliciting comments on the proposed controls for formaldehyde (CAS No. 50-00-0) in paints, aiming to prohibit the sales (e.g., retail, online) of paints with formaldehyde which are used for indoor applications. Formaldehyde is commonly used in the manufacture of resins, as a disinfectant, or as a preservative in building products. Exposure to this substance may cause adverse health effects. The consultation period began on November 22, 2023; and will end on December 13, 2023.
