COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) 2018/1847

of 26 November 2018

amending Annex V to Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council on cosmetic products

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 30 November 2009 on cosmetic products (1), and in particular Article 31(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

The substance Biphenyl-2-ol and its salts, which have been assigned the names o-phenylphenol, MEA o-phenylphenate, potassium o-phenylphenate and sodium o-phenylphenate under the International Nomenclature of Cosmetics Ingredients (INCI), are currently allowed as preservatives in cosmetic products with a maximum concentration of 0,2 % (as phenol) in ready for use preparation under entry 7 of Annex V to Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009.

(2)

The Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS) concluded in its opinion of 25 June 2015, revision of 15 December 2015, (2) as regards the use of o-phenylphenol as a preservative, that a maximum concentration of 0,2 % in leave-on cosmetic products is not safe, while a maximum concentration of 0,15 % in such products can be considered safe, and that a maximum concentration of 0,2 % in rinse-off cosmetic products is considered safe. The SCCS also concluded that there might be a potential of injury to the vision system attributable to o-phenylphenol.

(3)

Following concerns raised by several Member States regarding the use of MEA o-phenylphenate, potassium o-phenylphenate and sodium o-phenylphenate, the SCCS indicated in an addendum to the above-mentioned opinion, adopted on 21-22 February 2018, (3) that the same conclusions on the safe use levels of o-phenylphenol cannot be applied as such to sodium o-phenylphenate, potassium o-phenylphenate or MEA o-phenylphenate. The SCCS stated that sodium o-phenylphenate, potassium o-phenylphenate and MEA o-phenylphenate may have potentially more potent toxic effects than o-phenylphenol due to greater skin penetration. The SCCS concluded that a potential risk to human health from the use of these substances as preservatives in cosmetic products cannot be excluded.

(4)

In light of the above-mentioned SCCS opinions and in view of the potential risk to human health arising from the use of those substances, the use of o-phenylphenol as a preservative should be allowed with a maximum concentration of 0,15 % in leave-on and 0,2 % in rinse-off cosmetic products. In addition, it should be indicated that contact with eyes should be avoided. The use of sodium o-phenylphenate, potassium o-phenylphenate and MEA o-phenylphenate as preservatives should not be allowed.

(5)

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

(6)

The industry should be allowed a reasonable period of time to adapt to the new requirements by making the necessary adjustments to product formulations to ensure that only products complying with those requirements are placed on the market. The industry should also be allowed a reasonable period of time to withdraw products which do not comply with the new requirements from the market.

(7)

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

In Annex V to Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009, entry 7 is replaced by the text set out in the Annex to this Regulation.

COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2018/1848

of 26 November 2018

on the reimbursement, in accordance with Article 26(5) of Regulation (EU) No 1306/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council, of the appropriations carried over from financial year 2018

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1306/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 on the financing, management and monitoring of the common agricultural policy and repealing Council Regulations (EEC) No 352/78, (EC) No 165/94, (EC) No 2799/98, (EC) No 814/2000, (EC) No 1290/2005 and (EC) No 485/2008 (1), and in particular Article 26(6) thereof,

After consulting the Committee on the Agricultural Funds,

Whereas:

(1)

In accordance with point (d) of the first subparagraph of Article 12(2) of Regulation (EU, Euratom) 2018/1046 of the European Parliament and of the Council (2) non-committed appropriations relating to the actions financed by the European Agricultural Guarantee Fund (EAGF) as referred to in Article 4(1) of Regulation (EU) No 1306/2013 may be carried over to the following financial year. Such carryover is limited to 2 % of the initial appropriations voted by the European Parliament and by the Council and to the amount of the adjustment of direct payments as referred to in Article 8 of Regulation (EU) No 1307/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council (3) which was applied during the preceding financial year.

(2)

In accordance with Article 26(5) of Regulation (EU) No 1306/2013, by way of derogation from the third subparagraph of Article 12(2) of Regulation (EU, Euratom) 2018/1046, Member States are to reimburse the carryover referred to in point (d) of the first subparagraph of Article 12(2) of Regulation (EU, Euratom) 2018/1046 to the final recipients who are subject to the adjustment rate in the financial year to which the appropriations are carried over. That reimbursement only applies to final beneficiaries in those Member States where financial discipline applied (4) in the preceding financial year.

(3)

When setting the amount of the carryover to be reimbursed, in accordance with Article 26(7) of Regulation (EU) No 1306/2013 the amounts of the reserve for crises in the agricultural sector referred to in Article 25 of that Regulation, not made available for crisis measures by the end of the financial year, are to be taken into account.

(4)

In accordance with Article 1(1) of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/1236 (5), financial discipline is applied to direct payments in respect of calendar year 2017 to establish the crisis reserve. The crisis reserve has not been called on in financial year 2018.

(5)

In order to ensure that the reimbursement to the final recipients of unused appropriations as a result of the application of financial discipline remains proportionate to the amount of the financial discipline adjustment, it is appropriate that the Commission determines the amounts available to the Member States for the reimbursement. However, in the case of Romania, further clarification of the amount is required with reference to the threshold of EUR 2 000 that applies to financial discipline in accordance with Article 8(1) of Regulation (EU) No 1307/2013. Therefore, with a view to sound financial management, at this stage no amount should be made available to Romania for reimbursement.

(6)

To avoid compelling Member States to make an additional payment for that reimbursement, this Regulation needs to apply from 1 December 2018. Consequently, the amounts established by this Regulation are definitive and apply, without prejudice to the application of reductions in accordance with Article 41 of Regulation (EU) No 1306/2013, to any other corrections taken into account in the monthly payment decision concerning the expenditure effected by the paying agencies of the Member States for October 2018, in accordance with Article 18(3) of Regulation (EU) No 1306/2013 and to any deductions and supplementary payments to be made in accordance with Article 18 (4) of that Regulation or to any decisions which will be taken within the framework of the clearance of accounts procedure.

(7)

In accordance with the introductory phrase of Article 12(2) of Regulation (EU, Euratom) 2018/1046 the non-committed appropriations may be carried over to the following financial year only. It is therefore appropriate for the Commission to determine eligibility dates for the expenditure of the Member States in relation to the reimbursement in accordance with Article 26(5) of Regulation (EU) No 1306/2013, taking into account the agricultural financial year as defined in Article 39 of that Regulation.

(8)

In order to take into account the short time span between the communication of the execution of 2018 EAGF appropriations under shared management for the period from 16 October 2017 to 15 October 2018 by the Member States and the need to apply this Regulation from 1 December 2018, this Regulation should enter into force on the date of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

The amounts of the appropriations that will be carried over from financial year 2018 in accordance with point (d) of the first subparagraph and the third subparagraph of Article 12(2) of Regulation (EU, Euratom) 2018/1046 and that in accordance with Article 26(5) of Regulation (EU) No 1306/2013 are made available to the Member States for the reimbursement to the final recipients who are subject to the adjustment rate in financial year 2019, are laid down in the Annex to this Regulation.

The amounts that will be carried over are subject to the carryover decision of the Commission in accordance with Article 12(3) of Regulation (EU, Euratom) 2018/1046.

Article 2

Member States' expenditure in relation to the reimbursement of the appropriations carried over shall only be eligible for Union financing if the relevant amounts have been paid to the beneficiaries before 16 October 2019.

Article 3

This Regulation shall enter into force on the day of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

It shall apply from 1 December 2018.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.
