MagnaColours Receives Environmental Certifications For Inks
STIXO-Signage Supplies

Following site audits at the end of 2020, MagnaColours is now certified to Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Confidence Level 3 – the highest ZDHC certification level currently available. ZDHC Confidence Level 3 now means that over 55 MagnaPrint and MagnaTrans inks and additives certified to Oeko-Tex Eco-Passport also meet ZDHC’s Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (MRSL), and are verified as being responsibly manufactured.

MagnaColours has been working hard to remove harmful chemicals and helping printers use more environmentally friendly inks, and is continuing to ensure that its products are safer and better for the environment, printers and end-users.


ZDHC aims to remove harmful chemicals from production and the supply chain to protect workers, consumers and the environment. Through its efforts, the company is reducing not only its chemical footprint and environmental impact, but the impact of its customers as well.

OekoTex® Eco-Passport

OekoTex® Eco-Passport is an independent certification system for chemicals, colourants and auxiliaries used in the textile and leather industry. Each ingredient used in the manufacture of certified inks is checked to ensure it meets the Eco-Passport requirements and is not harmful to human health. The company’s inks certified under Eco-Passport can be used for the production of Oeko-Tex Standard 100 garments.

GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard)

GOTS is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain. Core MagnaPrint and MagnaTrans inks and additives are approved for use as inputs in the production of GOTS certified products.


MagnaColours ensures its core inks meet the industry’s toughest restricted substances lists by using its own GNA®, a universal certificate of compliance and sustainability that meets and exceeds the RSL guidelines of major brands. MagnaColours also independently tests its inks to ensure they are approved for use under the strict RSL requirements of major global brands including Nike® and Adidas®.
