122 Earn Regulatory Affairs Certification (RAC) in Spring 2021 Exam Period

Rockville, MD, USA, Aug. 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Regulatory Affairs Professionals Society (RAPS) today announced the names of the 122 professionals who earned Regulatory Affairs Certification (RAC) in the most recent RAC exam period this past spring. The RAC is the leading credential for regulatory professionals in the healthcare product sector.

“Congratulations to all who passed the RAC exams! It is a great accomplishment,” said RAPS Interim Executive Director Bill McMoil. “Earning the RAC demonstrates not only regulatory knowledge and critical thinking skills, but also an enduring commitment to the regulatory profession, continuous learning, and staying engaged with the global professional community.”

There are two versions of the RAC exam—one covering pharmaceutical regulations (RAC Drugs) and one focusing on regulations pertaining to medical devices (RAC Devices). Both exams test knowledge of pertinent regulations and their application in real-world scenarios. Of the 122 who passed, 57 passed the RAC Drugs exam and 65 passed the RAC Devices exam.

To maintain the credential, RAC holders are required to recertify every three years by demonstrating continuous learning, professional development, and regulatory leadership activities.

RAPS is currently accepting applications for the autumn 2021 RAC exam period, 1 November–10 December. The deadline to apply is 7 October. For more information, visit RAPS.org/rac.
