Regulatory is a complex area requiring specialized knowledge and the skill to apply it. Both the regulations and the professional competencies necessary to succeed in the field are continuously changing. RAPS tracks regulatory developments and evolving professional competencies, and uses the latest information to develop tools and resources to meet the current and emerging needs of regulatory professionals.

We connect the global regulatory community and empower professionals to share knowledge, ideas and expertise with one another. Both online and in person, we provide multiple opportunities for discussion, networking and relationship building among those based in disparate parts of the world or within the same local area.

We deliver relevant regulatory news and analysis for busy professionals, and informational and educational resources for those who need a deeper understanding on key topics. As the need for qualified regulatory professionals continues to grow around the world, we help promote a competent regulatory workforce.

We offer information and tools to help regulatory professionals advance their careers, and we help connect regulatory jobseekers with potential employers. We also created and continue to support the only professional credential specifically for the regulatory field.

We help regulatory professionals effectively communicate the vital role they play in ensuring safe and effective healthcare products for patients and healthcare providers. We give them a voice in important conversations within their organizations and beyond as they are increasingly being called upon to play leading roles.

RAPS works to advance the regulatory profession in many ways. “Driving Regulatory Excellence” is not just our tagline, it is a summary of the work we do and what we strive for.
