Version 10 of the Handbook was published on 01/07/2014. For more information, please click 'History' Above

Rule 2: Form, timing and fees for applications made under these rules


All applications under these rules must comprise:


the prescribed form, correctly completed;


the fee or fees for the application, as determined from time to time by the SRA Board;


such additional information, documents and references considered by the SRA to be necessary to enable it to discharge its functions under these rules, as may be specified by the SRA; and


any additional information and documentation which the SRA may reasonably require.


It is not necessary to submit all documents, information and payments simultaneously, but an application will only have been made once the SRA has received all of the documentation, information and payments comprising that application.

Guidance notes


Application forms and guidance notes can be found on the SRA website.


All parts of the application form must be fully completed. Where forms are only partially complete or where supporting information or documents are still to be provided, the application will not be deemed to have been made and the decision period in Rule 5.2 will not start to run.
