GLP Certification 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. Whilst most commonly associated with drug development in the pharmaceutical industry, it also applies to ingredients and formulations used in the cosmetics and chemical industries and covers products that might be applied to the skin, eyes or hair, or ingested.
GLP Certification governs the organisational processes and conditions under which non-clinical safety studies are conducted and makes sure they are:
This ensures the uniformity, consistency, reliability, reproducibility, quality and integrity of studies and gives confidence in the assessment of the safety of a product or ingredient.
