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.

New Global SPIN

The Global SPIN was set up in December 2021 based on member requests to create a dedicated forum for those who have ‘Rest of the World/ROW’ or ‘Global’ responsibilities within their roles. This space allows members from across the world to ask questions, share information, and generally to discuss topics linked to global markets outside the remit of EU/US regulations.
