138 Global Professionals Earn Regulatory Affairs Certification (RAC) in Autumn 2020

138 Global Professionals Earn Regulatory Affairs Certification (RAC) in Autumn 2020

RAPS announced today the names of 138 individuals who passed Regulatory Affairs Certification (RAC) exams last autumn. By passing the rigorous exam, they earn the RAC, the leading credential for regulatory professionals in the healthcare product sector.

The RAC exams test knowledge of regulations governing pharmaceutical products or medical devices, depending on which version of the exam—RAC Drugs or RAC Devices—is taken, as well as how the regulations are applied in real-world scenarios. Of the 138 passers, 79 passed the RAC Drugs exam, and 59 passed the RAC Devices exam. One person passed both.

“I want to extend RAPS’ wholehearted congratulations to everyone who earned the RAC, particularly over the past year with its unprecedented challenges,” said RAPS Interim Executive Director Bill McMoil. “Earning the RAC credential is always a significant accomplishment, but the COVID-19 global health emergency required both exam takers and the program itself to quickly adjust and adapt. Everyone who earned the RAC, and everyone who helped keep the exam program going, deserves our unreserved praise.”

Last year, RAPS launched a pilot program allowing candidates to take the exam online using their own computers from home or another private location. RAPS also expanded the number of exam periods available from two to three per year.

The next RAC exam period accepting applications will be this summer, 12 July–20 August, and the deadline to apply is 17 June. Following that, the next exam period will be 1 November–10 December, with an application deadline of 7 October. Applications are being accepted now for both exam periods. For more information, visit RAPS.org/rac.

To maintain the credential, RAC holders must recertify every three years through continuous learning, professional development, regulatory leadership, and an overall ongoing commitment to the profession.

Following is the complete list of those who earned the RAC credential during autumn 2020. (* indicates an individual passed both exams.)
