Member

Anyone working in or interested in regulatory affairs can become a TOPRA member.

There are three types of standard membership:

  1. Individual Member – this is for established professionals working in or interested in regulatory affairs
  2. Individual Member – Graduate Rate – this offers a discounted rate for those who have completed their undergraduate degree within the last two years and are not currently pursuing a Master's degree or PhD
  3. Individual Member – Emerging Markets – this offers a discounted rate for those who are based in low to middle income countries and working in or interested in regulatory affairs

Graduate eligibility

Graduate membership of TOPRA is your starting point in regulatory affairs and gives you the knowledge, skills and experience you need to get ahead. 

To support those who are beginning their healthcare careers, we have created our Graduate subscription rate which offers a 50% discount on the fee for Individual Membership. This is strictly reserved for new members who have gained a (life science) university undergraduate degree within the last two years. Please contact the membership team with any questions.

PhD and Master's degree students are not eligible for this rate. Please take advantage of our standard individual membership category. 


Emerging Markets eligibility

To support those who are based in low to middle income countries, we have created our Emerging Markets subscription rate which offers a 50% discount on the fee for Individual Membership.

This is strictly reserved for new members who are based in low to middle income countries, as defined by The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).


Concessionary rates

Concessionary rates are available to members on a career break, on maternity or paternity leave, or who have retired. Please email us or call +44 (0)207 510 2560 for more information.

All subscription fees run on an annual basis from 1 January to 31 December each year. Fees are not dependent on date of joining and therefore not prorated.
