Regulatory Professionals attends TOPRA 2019 Symposium

Regulatory Professionals were delighted to exhibit again at the TOPRA symposium, the biggest event in the organisation’s history for a few years, drawing over 650 delegates and exhibitors.  With representation across industry from pharmaceutical, veterinary medicines and medical device sectors, plus patient groups, charities, healthcare professions, and more.  The presentations and sessions were hugely insightful utilising industry leaders and representatives from many national or international regulatory agencies – including the EMA, MHRA, EC and more – over 22 were represented and involved in some way. 

People came from all over the globe to listen, learn and debate current challenges and hot topics in the regulatory environment as well as access the latest information and insights from the most comprehensive EU regulatory affairs programme. Of particular interest was the changes coming through to combination products in medical devices in May 2020, an area that seems needs a lot of work in a small amount of time! With the current increase in combinations products and ATMPs in development, this is sure to cause disruption due to the increased complexity, not to mention authorities having to prepare for ‘life after Brexit’. With the inevitable issues with current supply chain, companies will need to understand how to navigate the practical implications of disruptive technologies and a changing regulatory landscape, with impeding Brexit decisions for those who are based in the UK and involved in exporting out of or importing into the UK.

Overall it was a very beneficial conference for us, getting to see a lot of familiar faces and catch up with some very valued customers, but also meeting new faces and learning a huge amount from some very interesting and innovative businesses and entrepreneurs out there.  Whatever happens at the end of October 2019 in the UK, the regulatory environment is one of constant change and innovation and it’s a great one to be part of!
