MHRA’s New International Recognition Procedure (IRP) Launches

Jan 1, 2024

The UK’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has launched its new International Recognition Procedure (IRP), allowing medicine developers to now submit applications.  The IRP replaces the EC Decision Reliance Procedure after the UK left the EU in 2016, and allows the MHRA to take into account the expertise of trusted regulatory partners in other countries when authorising medicines.  The MHRA will partner with regulators in Australia, Canada, Japan, Singapore, Switzerland and the USA, as well as the European Medicines Agency, individual EU member states and those in the European Economic Area.
