Orange County Regulatory Affairs (OCRA) is a non-profit volunteer organization composed of Regulatory Affairs professionals from the Southern California area who are interested in expanding their knowledge through educational programs and networking with one another. OCRA was formed in 1997 and quickly become one of the most vibrant and active non-for-profit volunteer-led organizations for regulatory affairs professionals in the United States. OCRA has over 700 members representing over 250 medical device, pharmaceutical, biologic, and dietary supplement companies in Orange County and surrounding areas, employed by small-to-large-sized manufacturers.
OCRA events & meetings provide an educational forum and a means for the regulatory community to network. Our focus is regulatory in nature; however, our programs have also provided timely information for individuals involved in Engineering (software validation and product development), Marketing (advertising and labeling), Quality (Quality System Regulation, etc.), and other related fields. Although we are based in Orange County, our meetings consistently draw participants from all over the West Coast region.
OCRA has several special interest groups that focus on issues germane to regulatory affairs professionals. Take advantage of these SIGs that give you the chance to meet and discuss relevant topics with your peers. Meetings of these specialty groups are free or discounted to OCRA members!
We are interested in co-promoting events and educational offerings with other non-profit organizations to help foster more awareness of OCRA and to keep our Members informed of other important training and educational offerings.
Contact OCRA with any questions or concerns. OCRA is always looking for new members, volunteers to run a program, host for a program, speakers, or help with the Annual Meeting or membership drives.
