Since its inception in 1981 the Dutch Association of Research Quality Assurance Professionals (DARQA) has been developing its role as the communication platform for Dutch and Flemish QA professionals.

DARQA regularly organizes meetings for its members on current topics and also invites relevant authorities, such as Inspection Gozondheidszorg (GCP, GLP, GMP).

The meetings are usually also accessible to non-members of DARQA.
