Commission Directive 2007/1/EC

of 29 January 2007

amending Council Directive 76/768/EEC, concerning cosmetic products, for the purposes of adapting Annex II thereof to technical progress

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 76/768/EEC of 27 July 1976 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to cosmetic products(1), and in particular Article 8(2) thereof,

After consulting the Scientific Committee on Consumer Products (SCCP),

Whereas:

(1) Following the opinions of the SCCP issued on the basis of scientific studies, the Commission together with Member States and stakeholders agreed on an overall strategy to regulate hair dye substances according to which the industry was required to submit files with scientific data on hair dye substances to be evaluated by the SCCP.

(2) The substances for which no explicit interest was expressed during the public consultation in defence of their use in hair dyes and for which no updated safety files were submitted to allow an adequate risk assessment should be included in Annex II.

(3) The substance 4-amino-3-fluorophenol has until now been considered to be covered by the general entry, reference number 22, concerning aniline, its salts and its halogenated and sulphonated derivatives. However, as it is not obvious that 4-amino-3-fluorophenol belongs to that aniline family a specific entry for that substance should be included in Annex II.

(4) For the sake of clarity, the substance epoxiconazole should be moved from the separate reference number 1182 to reference number 663 in Annex II to Directive 76/768/EEC.

(5) As no new further scientific data were submitted to the SCCP before 31 July 2006 for the evaluation of N,N′-dihexadecyl-N,N′-bis(2-hydroxyethyl)propanediamide, that substance should be included in Annex II.

(6) Directive 76/768/EEC should therefore be amended accordingly.

(7) The measures provided for in this Directive are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Cosmetic Products,
