The Department of Biotechnology has developed Biological Research Regulatory Approval Portal (BioRRAP) to track the regulatory approvals for a research proposal on a single portal. This will provide more credibility and recognition to such biological researches.

BioRRAP provides a single route to direct the applicant to regulatory agencies providing requisite approval relevant to the biological research. Based on a succinct set of questions responded in affirmative by the applicant, the list of regulatory agencies from whom approvals may be required for biological research, is determined and attached to the unique BioRRAP ID generated on the submission.

This portal will strengthen interdepartmental synergies and increase efficacy in functioning of agencies regulating various aspect of biological research. This will streamline the regulatory process and affirm ease of doing biological science.


  • BioRRAP ID is a unique ID generated when a research proposal is submitted on this portal.
  • The status of research proposal application submitted to various regulatory agencies would be visible to the applicant using the BioRRAP ID.
  • A biological research proposal requires BioRRAP ID for submission on portals of regulatory agencies.
  • A list of regulatory agencies issuing requisite approvals relevant to the submitted biological research proposal is attached to the BioRRAP ID.
