Contacting the HPRA during the COVID-19 Response

The vast majority of HPRA staff are currently working remotely. This is in line with Government advice which aims to slow down the spread of the infection.

During this period, please correspond with us by e-mail using existing HPRA staff e-mail contacts or via relevant mailboxes. Additional details, including emergency contacts, are also provided below.

Until further notice, our main contact phone number is unavailable. We also request that you do not correspond with us by post as we will have limited access to physical mail sent to our offices.

As regards medicines applications we would request that, where possible, CD/DVD/hardcopy applications are submitted electronically via CESP or to submissions@hpra.ie.
