What is Cosmetovigilance and Why is it Important?

As well as being a legal obligation under Article 23 of both the UK and EU Cosmetics Regulations, cosmetovigilance is a useful tool to monitor the product whilst it is on the market and identify any safety signals. Authorities also monitor the occurrence of undesirable effects through the legally-required reporting system for serious undesirable effects.

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, we advise companies to sign up for the annual 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 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.
