Approvals and amendments

The Health Research Authority provides the following approvals and opinions for research studies. 'What approvals and decisions do I need' in this section will help you understand what services you require and how to navigate and manage your application.

Before you begin your application and submit your project for approval there are a number of planning and preparation activities you need to complete. Visit the 'planning and improving research' section to ensure your application is 'right first time'.

To support you with writing and submitting your application for HRA Approval, we have created a series of top tips, which can be found within the IRAS help section.
