HRA Approval - What you need to know

Welcome to the Medical Research Council's introduction to the new HRA Approval process.

The MRC Regulatory Support Centre has summarised the HRA Approval process from an applicant’s perspective, to help support our Research Governance Forum with this change. This tool helps you navigate the definitive guidance from the Health Research Authority, mapping the steps in the process and incorporating tips. The tool will develop as HRA processes and guidance evolve and more tips come to light. We’d like to know if you find the tool useful, so please feedback your thoughts:
