Rockville, MD, USA (PRWEB) June 18, 2013
The Regulatory Affairs Professionals Society (RAPS) today announced the opening of two new offices in Asia—one in Singapore and one in Shanghai, China. The office in Singapore will serve as RAPS’ Pan-Asia office, serving the Asia Pacific region, and the Shanghai office will be more focused on audiences within China.
The announcement comes just a few months after RAPS announced its partnership with five Singapore government agencies to develop and implement a new medical device regulatory affairs training program in Singapore.
“RAPS’ presence in Asia has been expanding through several partnerships we have forged with regulators, agencies, companies and individual professionals throughout the region,” said RAPS Executive Director Sherry Keramidas, PhD, FASAE, CAE. “These two offices will allow us to support further development of our professional relationships and better position RAPS to respond to the needs of the regulatory community in Asia.”
As the region’s life sciences industry has grown, so too has the need for regulatory expertise.
“It is indeed timely for the Regulatory Affairs Professionals Society to extend its outreach to Asia, and in particular to Singapore and China,” said Christina Lim, senior director of the Singapore Health Sciences Authority<
