The safety of consumers, and therefore of cosmetic products, is the highest priority of the cosmetics industry, as well as a mandatory regulatory requirement. Article 10 of the UK and the EU Cosmetics Regulations require that all cosmetic products must undergo a safety assessment by an appropriately qualified safety assessor. Although the qualifications are essential, continuing training and education in relevant areas of toxicology helps to ensure robust safety assessment of cosmetic products.
In order to increase knowledge and awareness about this extremely important topic across the cosmetic industry, CTPA is proud to launch the ‘CTPA Safety Assessment Campaign 2021’.
What will you learn?
The campaign consists of the following seven modules, delivered by industry experts.
The first module will take the form of a live webinar with an interactive panel discussion where highly experienced safety assessors will discuss best practises for safety assessments and compiling the Cosmetic Product Safety Report. The following six modules are bitesize E-learning videos which can be watched at any convenient time.
- Overview of the Cosmetic Product Safety Report (CPSR)
- Key toxicological principles in cosmetic safety assessment
- Local toxicity (skin irritation, eye irritation, skin sensitisation and phototoxicity)
- Systemic toxicity (repeated dose toxicity, genotoxicity/mutagenicity/carcinogenicity, reproductive toxicity)
- Packaging, microbiology, stability and Cosmetovigilance
- Safety assessment of fragrances and botanical ingredients
- Next Generation Risk Assessment (NGRA) for cosmetic safety
On the completion of all seven modules, you will be eligible to receive a Certificate of Attendance from CTPA. In addition, the completion of all seven modules within the CTPA Safety Assessment Campaign 2021 will count as two seminar points towards obtaining the “DGK Safety Assessor Certificate”, which is a training scheme run by IKW, the German Cosmetic Association together with the German Society of Scientific and Applied Cosmetics (DGK). Please see this news item for further information.
Further details are available in the campaign programme.
