Conclusion of the opinion:

The SCCS considers that Disperse Red 17 as an ingredient at 0.2% in non-oxidative hair dye formulations and at 2% in oxidative hair dye formulations is safe for the use by consumers. The nitrosamine content in Disperse Red 17 should be < 50ppb, and it should not be used in the presence of nitrosating agents. A sensitising potential of Disperse Red 17 cannot be excluded. This safety assessment of Disperse Red 17 is based on the specification for use as a hair dye ingredient.
