Individual Member – Emerging Markets

TOPRA is the global professional body for individuals who work in healthcare regulatory affairs. We exist to help you excel in your career, whether you are new to regulatory affairs or already established in the sector.

If you are based in a low to middle income country*, we are delighted to be able to offer you individual membership of TOPRA at a very special rate.

For the reduced subscription fee of £105, our Individual Member – Emerging Markets category will enable you to take advantage of the full suite of member privileges, including:

  1. Networking with our regional and special interest groups
  2. Our monthly journal Regulatory Rapporteur
  3. Regular updates on the latest news and developments
  4. Exclusive access to our Regulatory Intelligence Knowledge Hub

We are also licensed by the Science Council to provide two different levels of professional registration, Registered Scientist (RSci) and Chartered Scientist (CSci). Becoming professionally registered will demonstrate your proven knowledge, understanding and competence, and is a globally-recognised hallmark of excellence.
