Good Labratory Practice (GLP)

In the US, the GLPs are regulated quality standards that are designed to ensure the quality, integrity and reliability of non-clinical test data submitted to federal agencies in support of a research or marketing permit under federal law. GLPs encompass both lab and field research and dictate the organization, process, and conditions under which studies are planned performed, monitored, recorded, and reported.

GLP product research may include FDA regulated and monitored studies, such as drugs for human and animal use, aroma and color additives in food, cosmetics, biological products, dietary supplements and medical devices and EPA regulated and monitored studies, such as pesticides, insecticides, fungicides, and toxic substances. GLPs can be applied to guideline and non-guideline studies.
