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.

Current groups

  • Austria
  • England & Wales
  • France
  • Germany
  • Ireland
  • Italy
  • The Netherlands & Belgium
  • North America
  • Scotland
  • Spain
  • Sweden
  • Switzerland


Each local TOPRA In community is led by a steering group of volunteers who organise a number of networking meetings each year. Local TOPRA members and other regulatory professionals meet to exchange ideas and opinions that may be of particular interest in these countries or regions. Some countries also run webinars or send out newsletters to the wider community of members.

Upcoming events:
