About the SRA Handbook
The SRA Handbook sets out the standards and requirements we expect our regulated community to achieve and observe, for the benefit of the clients they serve and in the public interest.
Version 21 of the Handbook was published on 6 December 2018. Read release notes for Version 21, or choose from the options on the left to browse Version 21.
Changes in Version 21
