The British Institute of Regulatory Affairs - The first choice for Regulatory Professionals.
The British Institute of Regulatory Affairs is established as a company limited by guarantee, with offices at No 7, Heron Quays, Marsh Wall, London E14 4JB. The activities of the Institute are directed by the 14 member Governing Body which is elected annually from amongst the Members and Fellows. The membership of the Governing Body consists of the Officers, who are elected annually - the Chairman, Vice Chairman, Treasurer, Secretary, ESRA Operations officer and Chairpersons of the Education and Publications Committees - and the Executive Committee comprising seven other members, one of whom represents ESRA, elected for three-year terms - OFFICIAL SITE LOCATED HERE: https://www.topra.org
Reporting to the Governing Body are a number of other Committees which are responsible for the day-to-day organisation of specific activities: the Membership Committee; the Education Committee and the Publications Committee.
Special interest groups representing particular sectors within the membership (e.g. biotechnology, medical devices, etc.) have also been established as Standing Committees. Several regional groups: "BIRA East"; "BIRA North" and others have been formed. These groups offer the opportunity for individuals to meet with other professionals in the same geographical areas.
The permanent staff of the Institute includes an Executive Director, who reports to the Governing Body; Meetings Coordinators, the Membership Secretary and the Financial Controller. In addition to the Standing Committees, the Education Committee establishes Working Parties on a standing or an ad hoc basis to take responsibility for the organisation of individual events. The Chairman for each Working Party is nominated by the Chairman of the Education Committee and the Chairman then selects the membership of the Working Party from the available pool of volunteers.
The organisation of events is an important part of BIRA's activities, and volunteers for the Working Parties are always welcome. Any member or associate who wishes to get involved in such activities should contact the BIRA office.
