Do you Know the Differences between a UE and a SUE?

Article 2 of the UK and EU Cosmetics Regulations gives specific definitions for Undesirable Effects (UEs) and Serious Undesirable Effects (SUEs).  SUEs have reporting obligations under the UK and EU Cosmetics Regulations.  It is important for companies to understand the differences between UEs and SUEs and the related legal obligations. 

To practice your knowledge of UEs and SUEs, CTPA encourages companies to join its biannual webinar ‘Cosmetovigilance: Practical Case Study’ on 18 October 2023 at 14.00-15.00.  The webinar is free for members of CTPA; non-members of the Association who completed the Cosmetovigilance e-learning can also access the webinar for free.

This CTPA webinar provides practical examples to demonstrate how to carry out the causality assessment and determine whether the adverse reaction can be attributed to your product.  The webinar is interactive, allowing attendees to actively participate to the case studies.

We advise companies to attend this webinar after taking the Cosmetovigilance E-Learning.
