Regulatory Affairs Specialists


Employment growth is expected to be good for regulatory affairs specialists in the coming years. Those with prior experience and training in areas such as business, engineering, marketing, pharmacy, or science will be in demand. Regulatory affairs specialists will be needed to help ensure companies' operations and products are in compliance with governmental and industry regulations and laws. The Department of Labor (DOL) includes regulatory affairs managers in the compliance officers category. The DOL forecasts 8 percent employment growth, about as fast as average for all other occupations, through 2026 for compliance officers. Regulatory affairs specialists with three or more years of regulatory experience, knowledge of current and emerging regulations and laws, and strong technology skills will have the best job prospects.
