We have challenged a supplier who has stated in their specification that there may be traces of milk in the product, when further asked they said it could be up to 1%, to me this is more carry over then trace, what are your thoughts?

I was also wondering what levels would be used to define trace, my own thought is <0.1g/100g.

Are you stating on your label that your product is dairy free?

If yes, then even if your supplier states "may contain traces of " you should do an independant testing and as long as you prove that after using ELISA method of quantitative testing for total milk, you are getting <LOQ 1ppm which is the lowest level it could be reasonalbly quantified you should be ok.

The end responsibility is on you since the supplier has done his job of including the warning on his label.
