MHRA Portal: register to submit forms

How to register on the MHRA portal and use it to apply for and update marketing authorisations and make other applications.

Sign in to the MHRA Portal. There is a link for you to register online.

See the How to register for MHRA Portal and RamaXL (PDF, 700 KB, 11 pages) for extra help.

You can register up to 7 people for free (including training for 2) and then pay for additional people to be added or trained.


As part of the registration process you will need 2 administrators to enrol and pass the online training before you can start using the portal. The training is free and we expect the administrators to train other portal users in the organisation.

Once registration and terms and conditions have been processed, the portal helpdesk team will arrange access to the online training material.

Register users

You need to provide names of 2 administrators you want registered on the online registration form on the portal’s front page.

Besides these 2 administrators, you can add up to 5 further named users. They will need to be trained by your administrators.

Additional users: fees

If you need more than 7 named users, you must contact MHRA to request a further bundle of 5 people to be added.

The cost is £1,000+VAT for the bundle with 5 people which needs to be renewed annually.

Any additional training at MHRA costs £250+VAT per person.
