Menu Back to Short-Course-2-Essentials-of-Effective-Regulatory-Collaboration


Building, enhancing, and maintaining productive relationships is the hallmark of good business- and the regulatory development process. However, too often government and industry stakeholders do not prioritize this task. Industry regulatory affairs professionals are an untapped resource that have access to critical information that the government requires to ensure the regulations and policies that are developed meet the stated mutual objectives and are implementable. This course provides an opportunity to learn what effective engagement and stakeholder relationships look like from the government perspective and develop a strategy to increase your value as an industry stakeholder, while understanding and upholding ethical obligations of both parties. Structured discussions will enable participants to explore barriers to effective relationships from both government and industry perspectives, share experiences, identify challenges and discuss potential solutions to improve engagement
