15A switches on a 20A circuit

I am running a 20A circuit (per code) to my new bathroom. I found a lighted switch that I'd like to use, but it's rated at 15 amps.

The circuit only has a 20 amp GFCI and the vanity light.

Can I use this 15 amp switch on this circuit or must it be rated at 20 amps?

Thankk You!

15A rating on switch is the rated load. You can use it on a 20A circuit. Don't load it over 15A.
