TOPRA is the global organisation for Regulatory Affairs professionals and for those who have an interest in Regulatory Affairs in the healthcare sector.
Our current membership is drawn from over 40 countries and members worldwide are actively involved in delivering the services needed by busy regulatory specialists. Members are drawn from industry, the regulatory agencies and the consultancy community and work in all sectors including medical technologies, biotech, borderline products and pharmaceuticals.
TOPRA is a non-profit, non-political organisation which seeks to advance the status of the regulatory profession through education, and provision of information to its members. Members have the advantage of a structured training programme available to them at preferential rates.
This programme ranges from intensive Introductory Courses for new entrants to the profession, through detailed practical courses on topics of interest to those with a few years’ experience, to an MSc qualification. There are also management courses designed specifically to meet the challenges of the regulatory professional as his or her career develops. The training programmes are highly regarded and internationally recognised in the Regulatory Affairs profession.
Members also have access to an international journal giving the latest news and comment on current regulatory matters as well as a variety of services including breaking news, industry links, and career opportunities to list but a few. Through the website, journal and direct mail services, members are kept advised of new career opportunities in the field and the salary survey is a useful tool for all in the profession.
Just by being a member of TOPRA, an individual signals a commitment to their career in Regulatory Affairs and a serious approach to the difficult task of keeping up-to-date in this rapidly changing environment.
The work of TOPRA is supported by dedicated office staff, but driven by the involvement and commitment of the members themselves. The input of members, whether they be employed by companies, consultancies, regulatory agencies or acting as freelancers, is vital in ensuring that all members gain the maximum benefit from their membership.
