248 Earned Regulatory Affairs Certification in Autumn 2017

RAPS is pleased to announce that 248 regulatory professionals passed the Regulatory Affairs Certification (RAC) exam during the autumn 2017 testing period, thereby earning the RAC credential.

The RAC is the only professional credential for regulatory professionals in the healthcare product sector.  Certification must be maintained through continuous learning and professional development, and renewed every three years. Currently, there are more than 4,500 RAC-credentialed professionals worldwide.

“Congratulations to the latest successful class of applicants for the RAC credential, and to all current holders of the RAC,” said RAPS Executive Director Paul Brooks. “RAC-credentialed professionals not only demonstrate current knowledge of relevant regulations and the critical thinking skills to apply them in a variety of situations, but also have several years of practical RA experience and have committed to improvement of the regulatory affairs profession via continuous learning and growth.”
