Description This one-year Ontario College Graduate Certificate program provides students with industry-specific knowledge to enter and promote their careers in regulatory affairs. The regulation of products in industries, such as healthcare, biotechnology, food, industrial chemical and agrochemical is of international concern. The resulting increase in regulation has driven the demand for qualified individuals in regulatory affairs. With a focus on protecting the safety of people and the environment, professionals in this field have a positive impact on the public good. Students examine the vital role performed by regulations and regulatory professionals, and become familiar with the regulatory environment in Canada and its harmonization with international regulatory regimes. The socioeconomic aspects of regulation across affected industries are also considered. Students develop familiarity with quality operations and navigating the regulatory landscape and frameworks that govern processes and products. Through collaborative work and individual study, students interpret and apply regulations, develop and manage regulatory submissions, assess regulatory compliance and report findings. Students enhance their communication and project management skills throughout.
