Overview

The regulations for cosmetic products globally have been in place for nearly 50 years and have been changing and growing worldwide. Previously there had not been a requirement to test cosmetics in the same manner as medicines because of perceived lack of effect or ‘danger’ to the consumer.

The identification and analysis of adverse reactions (Serious Undesirable Effects (SUEs)), related to cosmetic products is a process that used to be mainly industry driven. However, it is now the responsibility of manufacturers to determine that products and ingredients are safe before they are marketed, and to then collect reports of undesirable effects similar to the pharmaceutical industry, and conduct safety summaries of their products.

The rules that apply to cosmetics differ from country to country, including how to collate data for the Product Information File (PIF), safety reviews, causality assessments, reporting, and other areas of the legislation.

This course will provide a comprehensive overview of Cosmetovigilance in Europe, the USA and the Rest of the World (ROW).  It will cover the applicable legislation, the regulatory requirements, what needs to be reported, the role of the Responsible Person, borderline products and promotional claims.

Essentially it will provide key guidance for manufacturers and distributors on how to comply with the regulatory requirements, and will be valuable for pharmaceutical and medical device companies looking to access the cosmetic market.
