RAPS' Latest | 13 February 2018 | By Zachary Brousseau
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.”
See below for the complete list of professionals who attained the RAC credential in autumn 2017.
There are four different RAC certifications available: the RAC (US) covering US regulations, the RAC (EU) covering European regulations, the RAC (CAN) covering Canadian regulations and the RAC (Global), which covers general regulatory responsibilities and international standards. RAC exams and the criteria for maintaining the credential are developed, managed and administered by the Regulatory Affairs Certification Board (RACB) with support from RAPS.
