The Importance of Building Regulatory Competencies to Address a Broadening Skills Gap

The regulatory profession is a relatively new profession,
having been established just a few decades ago, and people
still tend to enter the field from other related disciplines.
The regulatory workforce broadly includes either those who
possess plenty of experience, having performed roles in
other areas of the pharma sector, or graduates and younger
recruits who simply enter the industry from other career
fields. In order to address the skills gap, Matthew Clark of
the Regulatory Affairs Professionals Society (RAPS) explains
that there is a real need for formal training and certification
to become standard practice for regulatory professionals.
