RAPS congratulates the 82 professionals who earned their Regulatory Affairs Certification (RAC) during the summer examination window. The RAC credential is the leading certification for regulatory professionals in the healthcare product sector.
 
These individuals join a cadre of more than 5,000 professionals who hold at least one RAC credential globally. 
 
“On behalf of RAPS, I offer my sincere congratulations to the 82 professionals who passed these challenging exams,” said RAPS Interim Executive Director Bill McMoil. “Earning the RAC credential is a big milestone. It signals to employers, clients and colleagues that the holder is knowledgeable, capable and committed to regulatory excellence.” 
 
The RAC exams are rigorous. To pass, one must demonstrate not only knowledge of healthcare product regulations, but also the analytical and critical thinking skills to apply them in a variety of scenarios. There are two different RAC exams. The RAC-Drugs exam covers regulations pertaining to pharmaceutical and biologic products, and the RAC-Devices exam covers regulations governing medical devices and technology. 

“Congratulations to the new RAC credential holders,” said RAPS Credentialing Director Jennifer Naughton. "RAC holders are recognized and respected globally, and their presence within an organization and as independent consultants provides deep reassurance to key stakeholders and the public.” 
 
RAC-credentialed professionals are among the current and rising leaders in the regulatory profession. To maintain the credential, RAC holders must recertify every three years by demonstrating continuous learning, professional development, regulatory leadership, and an ongoing commitment to the profession.
