Do you Know your Obligations for Cosmetovigilance as an RP?

The Responsible Person (RP) must comply with specific requirements for cosmetovigilance under the UK and EU Cosmetics Regulations.  There are obligations to assess and interpret an Undesirable Effect (UE) or a Serious Undesirable Effect (SUE), collect information to carry out a causality assessment, as well as reporting relevant cases to authorities.  Are you looking to upskill on your cosmetovigilance obligations as an RP?

CTPA has launched a new e-learning on Cosmetovigilance.  This e-learning provides a comprehensive training on cosmetovigilance and companies’ related obligations.  This CTPA training gives an overview of company’s recording and reporting obligations in the UK and the EU when a consumer experiences an adverse event, with a particular focus on performing a causality assessment. 

The e-learning is available for free to members of CTPA; non-members of the Association can access the training for a payable fee of 75£+VAT.

After taking this e-learning, we advise companies to sign up for the biannual webinar presenting case studies on how to perform the causality assessment.  The webinar is interactive, allowing active participation for attendees via practical examples.  Please visit the CTPA events page to check the next upcoming webinar.  The next session is scheduled for 15 May 2023 at 15.00-16.00.  To register, please click here.  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.
