A Stringent Regulatory Authority (SRA) is a medicines regulatory authority that enforces and ensures medicines developed by manufacturers and suppliers are up to international standards. Some donors require specific SRA approvals to be in place before products can be procured (e.g. Procurement from the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief requires approval from the United States Food and Drug Administration). The CHAI SRA approvals database is a consolidated overview of US FDA, WHO PQ, and GF ERP approvals for ARV drugs and can be referenced for information on all current SRA approved products across suppliers.
