It is regulated in Annex III, entry 94, to Cosmetics Regulation 1223/2009, which limits its use to artificial nail systems for professional use with a limited maximum concentration in finished products (after mixing) of 0.7%.
It is currently listed in Annex VI, entry 617-008-00-0 to Regulation CLP 1272/2008, with the classifications Org. Perox.
