Communities

A key reason for joining TOPRA is to network with other regulatory professionals from all over the world. We provide opportunities to exchange news, views and ideas face-to-face and online, formally and informally. Our ever-expanding collection of communities groups is segmented by region and topic.

'TOPRA In' regional groups

'TOPRA In' groups support regulatory professionals living and working in a country or region, providing a forum for discussion and networking.

The groups aim to:

  • Develop a local TOPRA networking arm in individual countries for meetings and discussion
  • Support the TOPRA members living and working in a country and increase the membership of regulatory professionals
  • Work cooperatively with other not-for-profit or government organisations and relevant academic institutions.
