First in Asia for the regulatory society
The Regulatory Affairs Professionals Society (RAPS) has established a new chapter in Taiwan, its first in Asia.
The RAPS Taiwan Chapter originated as an affiliate. In becoming an official chapter, it will be able to offer additional resources and opportunities to the regulatory community in Taiwan.
'Regulatory professionals from Taiwan can look forward to local training and networking activities while continuing to access RAPS resources for their professional development and career progression,' said RAPS' Executive Director Sherry Keramidas.
The Taiwan Chapter is the latest in a series of steps expanding the society's presence in Asia.
Last year, RAPS opened a Pan-Asia office in Singapore, which serves the entire Asia-Pacific region, and another in Shanghai, serving the regulatory community in China. In 2013, the society also began working with the government of Singapore to develop and implement a new medical device regulatory affairs training programme there.
Membership of the Taiwan Chapter is open to Taiwan residents who are involved in regulatory affairs, quality or other functions related to healthcare product regulation.
The chapter has a web page in Mandarin Chinese as well as a Facebook page.
