Regulatory Writing: The essence of regulatory writing as defined by its jargon

Abstract

In this issue of Medical Writing dedicated to regulatory writing, many of the articles provide some glimpses of the day-to-day problems and dilemmas faced by regulatory writers. It is hard, however, to describe the essence of regulatory writing in a succinct and comprehensive fashion. For my column in this issue, I have provided a glossary (by no means exhaustive) of some of the more common terms used by regulatory writers, with an description of what they mean in the context of day-to-day working life. My hope is that through describing the way jargon is used by regulatory writers, I can transmit a feel for the less intangible aspects of the job.
