Good Laboratory Practice - what's it all about?

Around the world, mandatory testing is required to demonstrate products are safe for their intended use - and compliance with Good Laboratory Practice ensures the delivery of reliable data to support this position.

Regulatory compliance is a complex issue - we interviewed Marco Lattughi, Operations Director Bedford laboratory, to explain Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) and what it means for our clients and their products.

So what is Good Laboratory Practice, or GLP?

GLP is a quality control system covering the organisational process and the conditions under which non-clinical health and environmental studies are planned, performed, monitored, recorded, reported and retained (or archived).

To support our clients, particularly those in the agrochemical industry, following 12 months or so of investment in our facilities and people, becoming GLP compliant was a natural next step.

And why do our clients need to be GLP compliant?

Tighter regulations ensure pharmaceutical, chemical and biological products entering the market (or already on the market) are safe for humans, animals and the environment. Mandatory testing helps manufacturing companies demonstrate their products are safe for their intended use. 

The OECD principles – applied across all OECD countries – ensures that before regulatory decisions are made on the safety of chemicals, governments can be confident that the data they are relying upon is robust, validated and of the highest quality.

How does this benefit our clients?

The primary benefit of GLP is data integrity and validity.

The OECD Principles of Good Laboratory Practice ensure the delivery of high quality, reliable analysis data related to the safety of industrial chemical substances and preparations. The principles have been developed in the context of harmonising testing procedures for the Mutual Acceptance of Data (MAD) between national authorities.

Following internationally accepted methods and strict compliance to OECD principles, RPS can conduct a wide range of tests to evaluate chemical properties of agrochemicals in compliance with OECD guidelines.

What can RPS offer clients that other laboratories perhaps can’t?

We like to collaborate with our clients - to design a tailored analytical programme to meet their complex regulatory needs. Leveraging our state-of-the-art instrumentation, we deliver holistic solutions - often to ultra-low limits of detection to suit their most challenging requirements.

Our team is fully equipped to identify trace levels of contamination, even at ultra-low limits of detection.
