Regulations and Approvals Expert Working Group (RA EWG)
In order to realize the APAC's mission, RA EWG produced two deliverables.

The report will be updated annually so as to maintain the information be accurate. And another one is Concept Paper which provides with the fundamental framework in the activities and outlines a strategic multi-year approach.
