Whereas:

(1)

The Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS) concluded in its opinion of 30 July 2018 (2) (‘the SCCS opinion’) that Phenylene Bis-Diphenyltriazine is safe for use as a UV filter in sunscreen products and other cosmetic products at a maximum concentration of 5 % and that its use was safe only in dermally applied products and not in products that may lead to inhalation exposure.

(2)

In light of the SCCS opinion and in order to take into account technical and scientific progress, the use of Phenylene Bis-Diphenyltriazine as a UV filter in cosmetic products should be authorised at a maximum concentration of 5 %, except in applications that may lead to exposure of the end user's lungs by inhalation.

(3)

Annex VI to Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 should therefore be amended accordingly.

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Cosmetic Products,
