: The draft measure is required to enact the prohibition to use in cosmetic products certain nanomaterials for which the Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS) identified a basis of concern. Annex II to the Cosmetics Regulation (list of substances prohibited in cosmetic products) should, therefore, be amended to uniformly implement within the internal market the prohibition to use the nanomaterials for which a basis of concern has been identified. The adoption of this draft Regulation is needed to ensure a high level of protection of human health for cosmetic products in the EU.
