Prepare study documentation

When applying for HRA Approval you will need to check what supporting documents you will need to provide well in advance of when you expect to submit your application. This will avoid unnecessary delays to your application.

Helping you to succeed first time

To help you write and submit your HRA Approval application, our top tips can be found in the help section on IRAS.

We see common application errors which usually delay an application's progress and in some mean it is rejected. Understanding these common errors will help you to not make the same mistakes.

Your application is assessed against a set of criteria and standards which apply to NHS project-based research. Your HRA Approval application will normally include ethical review - the relevant criteria is contained in the Research Ethics Committee Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).
