The regulatory function is vital in making safe and effective healthcare products available worldwide. Individuals who ensure regulatory compliance and prepare submissions, as well as those whose main job function is clinical affairs or quality assurance are all considered regulatory professionals.
One of our most valuable contributions to the profession is the Regulatory Code of Ethics. The Code of Ethics provides regulatory professionals with core values that hold them to the highest standards of professional conduct.
Like all professions, regulatory is based on a shared set of competencies. The Regulatory Competency Framework describes the essential elements of what is required of regulatory professionals at four major career and professional levels.

The Training and Compliance Coordinator is delegated by the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) as the post-approval monitor to design, develop and conduct: (1) On-site reviews of animal research projects to assess compliance with institutional and regulatory agency policies and procedures, and (2) educational and training programs regarding regulatory requirements, policies, and procedures for the use of animals in research.
About the Office of the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) The mission of the IACUC is to promote and to facilitate scientific research while complying with mandatory laws, regulations, and policies. The IACUC strives to reduce the number of animals required, to perform research with techniques that limit pain or distress, and to seek alternative procedures that can supply the required results but do not utilize living animals. To that end, our goal is to promote and encourage an atmosphere of attention, concern and caring for the welfare and comfort of the animals that are under our charge.
