The Orange County Regulatory Affairs Discussion Group (OCRA) is a nonprofit 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. Our membership includes individuals who work in Life Sciences industries such as medical devices, pharmaceutical, biologics, IVD, dietary supplement, food, cosmetics, etc.
OCRA has over 700 members representing more than 225 companies in Orange County and surrounding areas. Most of our members are employed by small-to-medium-sized manufacturers, although larger companies are also represented.
OCRA 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.
Join us to keep up with the latest in regulatory and legislative activities from across the nation and around the world!
