Under Article 23 of the EU Cosmetics Product Regulation (CPR) and the UK Cosmetics Regulation (UKCR), the Responsible Person (RP) and distributors have obligations to review, report and act on undesirable effects and serious undesirable effects.  The Cosmetovigilance system is very similar between both legislations, but there are different requirements in regard to reporting SUEs to the authorities. 


For more information, you can take the CTPA Cosmetovigilance e-learning; or access the relevant guidance for the UK and EU.
