As Australian regulations evolved and the Therapeutic Goods Regulations were introduced in the late 1980s, he switched his focus to consulting on the new compliance obligations facing the industry.
He is an active and long term member of numerous professional and industry associations and has spoken at conferences in Australia, China, New Zealand and the USA, and sat on many regulatory policy committees.
