Applying for HRA Approval e-learning available @HRA_Latest

The HRA has now made available e-learning training resources to support applicants and sponsors applying for HRA Approval.  These complement slide sets, leaflets and webinar recordings published previously.

Training resources for HRA Approval are available on the HRA Training Resources page of the HRA website.

HRA Approval was fully implemented on 31 March 2016 and is now the route for applying for approvals for all project-based research in the NHS led from England: portfolio, non-portfolio, commercial and non-commercial, those requiring review by an NHS REC and also those not requiring NHS REC review.  HRA Approval does not apply to Research Tissue Banks, Research Databases and studies taking place only in non-NHS sites.

This completes the phased roll out that has been underway since May 2015. NIHR CSP is now closed to new application.

Please see the HRA Approval Programme section of the HRA website for details. Information includes a set of Questions and Answers which may be helpful.
