How Do you Ensure that the SUE is Actually Caused by Your Product?

After collecting relevant information from the consumer about a specific adverse effect, companies must determine whether that unwanted reaction is classed as a Serious Undesirable Effect (SUE), the RP shall carry out a causality assessment to investigate whether the adverse event is related to the cosmetic product. Do you want to know how to carry out a causality assessment?

If you want to learn more about cosmetovigilance, CTPA has got a great e-learning on Cosmetovigilance. This e-learning provides

  • a comprehensive training on cosmetovigilance and companies’ related obligations;
  • an overview of company’s recording and reporting obligations in the UK and the EU;
  • a focus on how to perform the 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, companies are encouraged to sign up for the annual webinar presenting case studies on how to perform the causality assessment. 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. 

The next session is scheduled for 9 July 2024 at 14.30-15.30.  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.
