Why join TOPRA?

There are many reasons why regulatory professionals join TOPRA. One of the key motivations is that TOPRA membership signals to colleagues and employers a strong commitment to the regulatory profession. You become part of a diverse global community of regulatory professionals with defined values and standards of good practice.

By joining TOPRA you also help us to represent the interests of the profession in the wider healthcare arena.

There are tangible benefits, too. See below for more.

* Temporary suspension of the printed Regulatory Rapporteur journal

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are suspending the printing of Regulatory Rapporteur, our members-only journal, until September 2020. Regulatory Rapporteur will continue to be published as a PDF for digital download beginning with the May 2020 issue. We will review this decision as the situation unfolds.
