Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) regulations were developed in the late 1970s in response to malpractice in research and development activities by pharmaceutical companies and Clinical Research Organisations (CROs). GLP regulates the practices of scientists working on the safety testing of prospective drugs. Compliance with GLP ensures the quality and integrity of data and that a true representation of that data is presented to the Regulatory Authorities.

This interactive and engaging course examines the reasons why GLP is needed. It examines the regulations themselves, considers the personnel, equipment and facilities needed to conduct a non-clinical laboratory study that is GLP-compliant, and uses scenarios to look at how these regulations apply in the workplace.


Learning Objectives

  • Understand the principles that form GLP and why it was necessary
  • Develop the ability to establish GLP-compliance in your workplace 
  • Learn how to recognise GLP deficiencies using scenarios
  • Gain an in-depth knowledge of the regulations themselves.
