Our values

Learn about the values we ask of our members.


One of the main reasons 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. 

'TOPRA In' groups

TOPRA In groups support regulatory professionals living and working in a country or region, providing a forum for discussion and local networking. Currently more than a dozen countries in Europe and North America have dedicated TOPRA In groups.

Special Interest Networks (SPINs)

SPINs provide mutual support for professionals working in the same specialist sector within regulatory affairs, such as medical technologies, pharamcovigilance, clinical trials or veterinary regulatory affairs.
