RAPS Opens Offices in Singapore and China

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’s HSA Academy. “Asia is one of the fastest growing regions for healthcare providers today, and RAPS’ presence and support will be a great encouragement to healthcare professionals to increase their knowledge and expertise.”

“The rapid growth of the Chinese healthcare market is challenging the development of regulatory affairs and supervision. RAPS’ international experience in offering continuing education to regulatory affairs professionals brings great value to China,” said Yan Liang, senior advisor of international and legal affairs, Shanghai Municipal Food and Drug Administration Research Center. “Furthermore, RAPS’ active presence in China will advance senior regulatory professionals through global networking.”

Susan Tan serves as director of the Asia Pacific office, 20 Bendeemer Road, #04-02 Cyberhub, Singapore 339914, Singapore. Florence Chua is the director of the China office, 2302 Wise Logic International Center, 66 North Shan Xi Road, Shanghai 200041, P.R. China. Media inquiries should be directed to Zachary Brousseau, senior manager, communications, RAPS.
