About the Symposium

The TOPRA Symposium, held yearly since 2004, is the premier conference in Europe dedicated to healthcare regulatory affairs, with a programme encompassing the topics most relevant to those working in healthcare regulatory affairs, whether for human or veterinary medicines, medical devices or IVDs. The conference also includes a one-day session devoted to RA-related topics of particular interest to those working for start-ups, at SMEs and in academia. 

The Symposium is open to anyone interested in regulatory affairs and gathers delegates, speakers and exhibitors from industry, regulatory bodies, support services (consultants, recruiters, translators) and connected areas (patient groups, charities, healthcare professions, legal firms, universities, notified bodies and the media).
