180 Passed RAC Exams This Summer

RAPS announced today that 180 regulatory professionals passed the Regulatory Affairs Certification (RAC) exam during the summer 2020 exam period. Passing the RAC exam requires knowledge of, and competency in applying, healthcare product regulations.
 
There are two versions of the exam—RAC Drugs and RAC Devices—covering regulations for pharmaceuticals and medical devices, respectively. Of the 180 passers, 71 passed the RAC Drugs, and 110 passed the RAC Devices. One person took and passed both exams.
 
As part of a pilot program, summer RAC candidates were able to take the exam online with live online proctoring. The pilot has now been extended through spring 2021.
 
“This year has been both challenging and highly successful for the Regulatory Affairs Certification program,” said RAPS Interim Executive Director Bill McMoil. “Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, most of those who had planned to take the exam in the spring transferred to later exam windows, but very few cancelled. We also expanded the number of exam periods available from two to three per year, and introduced live online proctoring, allowing exam-takers greater flexibility.”
 
The 180 exam passers now hold the highly regarded RAC credential. The RAC is the leading professional credential for individuals in the healthcare product regulatory field. To maintain the credential, RAC holders must be recertify every three years through continuous learning, professional development, regulatory leadership, and an overall ongoing commitment to the profession.
 
The next RAC exam period accepting applications will be in the spring, 22 March–30 April 2021, and the deadline to apply is 25 February 2021. Exams will be administered at locations around the world, as well as online. For more information, visit RAPS.org/rac.
 
Following is the complete list of those who earned the RAC credential during summer 2020. Note: * indicates an individual passed both exams.
