HRA announces 10 August as start date for next phased roll out of HRA Approval
The HRA began the phased roll out of HRA Approval on 11 May 2015 for NHS staff research that does not require review by an NHS Research Ethics Committee.
The HRA has announced that the next cohort of studies to be part of the phased roll out will be studies taking place in primary care independent contractor settings only and that this will begin on 10 August 2015.
As part of HRA Approval, we will be introducing the new IRAS Form which will enable HRA Approval applications to be submitted electronically to the HRA. This single IRAS form replaces both the R&D and REC Forms for HRA Approval studies.
