Regulation 4 provides that azo dyes may not be used in textile and leather articles which may come into direct and prolonged contact with the human skin or oral cavity where such substances, by reductive cleavage of one or more azo groups, may release in detectable concentrations one or more of the aromatic amines listed in Schedule 1. The supply of textile and leather articles which do not comply with regulation 4(1) is prohibited by regulation 4(3). Regulation 5 prohibits the supply and the use of "blue colourant" defined in Schedule 2 for colouring textile and leather articles as a substance or constituent of preparations in concentrations higher than 0.1 percent by mass. Regulation 6 makes it an offence to contravene regulation 5 and specifies the penalties for such an offence. By virtue of regulation 7, regulation 4 and other regulations insofar as they relate to regulation 4, are safety regulations made under the Consumer Protection Act 1987. This Act makes the supply of goods in contravention of safety regulations an offence and makes other provisions for the enforcement of safety regulations. Regulation 8 specifies the powers of the Environment Agency, in England and Wales, and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency, in Scotland, to enforce regulation 5.
