THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community, and in particular Article 100 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission,

Whereas Article 5 of Council Directive 76/768/EEC of 27 July 1976 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to cosmetic products (1) lays down that, on expiry of a three-year period from notification of the Directive, the substances and colouring agents listed in Annex IV thereof shall either be definitively permitted, or definitively prohibited, retained for a further period of three years in Annex IV, or deleted from all Annexes;

Whereas, in view of the complexity of the problems to be solved, this deadline cannot be met and must therefore be extended,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DIRECTIVE:

Article 2

Member States shall take all measures necessary to comply with this Directive by 30 July 1979. They shall forthwith inform the Commission thereof.

Done at Brussels, 24 July 1979.

For the Council
