Cosmetic products | Amendment of Regulation 1223/2009 to enact the prohibition to use CMR substances

Title of document
Draft Commission Regulation amending and correcting Annex II and amending Annexes III, IV and VI to Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council on cosmetic products (11 page(s), in English)

The draft measure is required to enact the prohibition to use as cosmetic ingredients substances classified as carcinogenic, mutagenic or toxic for reproduction (CMR) by Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/217, which has been adopted based on the CLP Regulation and will apply from 1 October 2021. The adoption of this draft Regulation is, therefore, needed to reflect in the Cosmetics Regulation the new CMRs classification provided by Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/217, in order to ensure legal certainty and a high level of protection of human health.
