In 2009, a new decree for the regulation and operation of Lao Non-Profit Associations was created authorizing the Public administration and Civil Service Authority (PACSA), in conjunction with line ministries, to register and monitor all non-profit association in Lao PDR. On September 6, 2012 RRDPA received its license from Ministry of Home Affair to operate as a registered NPA.
