Research Quality Association Ltd

RQA (Research Quality Association) is a global community for QA professionals, providing invaluable information, education, and networking opportunities.

We support our members in their career development, build confidence in their abilities, provide reassurance that they’re doing the right thing, and confirm their status and credibility as QA professionals.

Since our inception in 1977, the Association has grown and developed to reflect regulatory changes, the impact of regulatory inspection, and the changing structure and needs of the industry. RQA was formerly called BARQA, the British Association of Research Quality Assurance and we changed our name in December 2012. 

We are an association dedicated to informing and advancing our members, we provide status and visibility for individuals concerned with the quality of research and development concerning pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, chemicals and medical devices.

Over the years we have grown and developed to reflect regulatory changes, the impact of regulatory inspection and the changing structure and needs of industry.

We provide invaluable information, education, and networking opportunities for our community.
