Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) is a quality system which intend for non-clinical studies and was revised by several bodies. GLP is a unique quality system in the sense it is intend for non-routine processes and activities. Sometime people confuse to see any works which is performed in a laboratory as done or should made in accordance with GLP. For instance, laboratory tests in a pharmaceutical plant however this kind of work are part of the GMP quality system of the pharmaceutical product and not a GLP (even it is done in the laboratory).

GLP is commonly in use in many areas and expended over various fields. It is usually required by regulatory authorities that studies submitted for approval in order to move for next phase (an IND application, for instance) were done under GLP. Obviously new chemicals should be tested for their environmental effects before been approved however it’s also true for long time approved used materials. As science progress and our abilities to explore and identify environmental effects are constantly improved, there is a continuous need to reevaluate these effects in the “old materials”. Effects that were not evaluated at first for a various reasons. These kind of studies are done under GLP. This webinar is introductory to GLP in accordance with OECD, EPA and FDA. It explain what GLP is about, where it should be implemented (and where not), the requirements and comparison to other laboratory quality system like ISO 17025 and GMP.

Why should you Attend: The authorities often required a GLP declaration and statement for submitted studies. Come to hear more on the requirements and particularly if you moving from another quality system like GMP or ISO 17025 to GLP, make the differences between these quality systems clear and prevent confusing especially if they are coexist in your site.
