What is GLP?

In the experimental (non-clinical) research arena, good laboratory practice or GLP is a quality system of management controls for research laboratories and organizations to ensure the uniformity, consistency, reliability, reproducibility, quality, and integrity of products in development for human or animal health (including pharmaceuticals) through non-clinical safety tests; from physiochemical properties through acute to chronic toxicity tests.

GLP was first introduced in New Zealand and Denmark in 1972, and later in the US in 1978 in response to the Industrial BioTest Labs scandal. It was followed a few years later by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Principles of GLP in 1992; the OECD has since helped promulgate GLP to many countries.

Good laboratory practice or GLP is a set of principles intended to assure the quality and integrity of non-clinical laboratory studies that are intended to support research or marketing permits for products regulated by government agencies.

GLP Recognition

Compliance with the OECD GLP principles helps ensure that non-clinical studies follow internationally accepted requirements.

GLP helps to ensure the credibility and traceability of data submitted, thereby addressing the issue of non-reproducibility in many biopharmaceutical experiments. GLP is intended to minimise adverse drug effects and improve human health and environmental safety profiles.
