Who are RQA

The Research Quality Association (RQA) is a professional membership body dedicated to informing and advancing its members. We provide status and visibility for individuals engaged in the quality of research concerning pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, chemicals and medical devices. Since our inception in 1977, the Association has increased and evolved to reflect regulatory changes, the growing impact of regulatory inspection and the ever-changing structure and needs of industry. RQA's purpose is to drive quality and integrity in scientific research.
