All those regulated by the SRA should have activated their account by Friday 13 January. More than 118,000 had successfully registered by that date. Those requiring a new activation code are urged to visit the activation code section of the mySRA pages.

The SRA's Contact Centre has extended its opening hours from today (Monday 16 January) to provide extra support. And a video outlining the process for firm renewals is available on the SRA website to talk people through what they need to do.

To provide further support and to deal with high levels of demand, Contact Centre opening hours have been extended as follows:

  • Monday and Friday 8.30 – 17.00
  • Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 8.30 – 19.00
  • Saturday 9.00 – 14.00

The video outlining the process is available online on the mySRA pages.
