Regulatory and Quality Advisory Board (RAQAB)

The mission of the PDA Regulatory Affairs and Quality Advisory Board (RAQAB) is to serve the PDA membership by influencing scientific-based regulations and providing interpretation on quality and regulatory issues affecting development, manufacturing and control of healthcare products. This encompasses many areas including FDA, EMA other global Regulatory Authorities and/or applicable bodies.

RAQAB is organized to focus on US, Canada, EU and Japanese regulations as well as on developments in emerging countries like Brazil, Russia, India, and China. RAQAB also provides oversight on the regulatory Interest Groups and members are represented in various conference committees. These activities are also supported by links to other Advisory Boards and the PCMO project in PDA.
