ARCP Checklist

 

  • Enhanced Form R

 

Form R Part B is only available through Synapse. To generate your Form R, log into Synapse, and on your homepage you should see a link in the left hand corner saying 'Form R'.  Click on this, make sure your information is up-to-date, and then generate your Form R.  Please note that previously, we required that the Form R have a physical signature.  There is now a button to click on that acts as an electronic signature.   Once this is complete you must generate the form as a pdf, and then attach it to your e-Portfolio.

 

Please note that if your enhanced Form R is not uploaded to the e-Portfolio, your outcome will be withheld. If this ARCP meeting is the final review ahead of your CCT/CESR date, failure to submit a completed enhanced Form R is likely to result in a delay to your CCT/CESR application.
