GLP includes the capability to protect the data integrity and quality of laboratory data. GLP Implementation is being performed based on written working procedures (SOP’s) and documentation of the work as it is being done.

The purpose of GLP is to support the development of quality and validated testing data used to verify the safety and compatibility to product specification. GLP regulation requirements cover several subjects, which include:

  • General requirements- Qualified personnel, adequate resources, Sanitation, employee health verification, garment, data storage
  • Facilities requirements-appropriate size, contamination separation, construction materials, sample storage
  • Equipment requirements- operational accessibility, efficiency, suitable for production rate, routinely maintained & calibrated, validation for equipment, validation for testing methods
