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 18 of the Handbook was published on 1 November 2016. Read release notes for Version 18, or choose from the options on the left to browse Version 18.

Changes in Version 18

Version 18 reflects our new approach to continuing competence and the repeal of the SRA Training Regulations 2011 Part 3 - CPD Regulations, which no longer appear in the SRA Handbook, as explained in the release notes for Version 18.

Further information on this new approach is available on our continuing competence toolkit.
