How to make a payment to MHRA by credit or debit card or a bank transfer and manage your account on iRIS.

You can pay MHRA for your product or application by credit or debit card or a bank transfer and you can manage your account with MHRA on iRIS.

You will need to provide proof of payment with all applications and so will need to pay before you submit your application. This can be either a:

  • BACS or CHAPS bank confirmation page
  • MHRA iRIS email account receipt (preferred for iRIS account holders)
  • credit card receipt from Worldpay showing transaction ID, amount and date
  • photocopy of the cheque for the required sum (dated and signed)
  • email confirmation from MHRA’s finance department

Check the list of fees if you haven’t already to ensure you pay the correct amount.

Credit or debit card

You can pay by credit or debit card if you are paying an outstanding invoice or for applications (eg a variation to your marketing authorisation). You will need to provide proof of payment with most applications and so will need to pay before you submit your application.

See the terms and conditions for making a payment by credit and debit card (PDF, 121KB, 3 pages) .

Bank transfer

You can make a bank transfer to remit payment of invoices or for an application (eg applying for a marketing authorisation). You will need to provide proof of payment with most applications and so will need to pay before submitting your application.
