Good Laboratory Practice (GLP)

A set of rules and criteria for a quality system concerned with the organizational process and the conditions under which non-clinical health and environmental safety studies are planned, performed, monitored, recorded, archived and reported. The GLP principles have been developed to promote the quality and validity of data generated in the testing of chemicals in order to facilitate their recognition for purposes of assessment and other uses relating to the protection of human health and the environment. U.S. GLPs are found in 21 CFR Part 58.
