Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) are the guidelines for quality control and quality assurance in testing laboratories. GLP methods deal with the organization, process, and conditions under which laboratory studies are planned performed, monitored, recorded, and reported. GLPs regulate all non-clinical safety studies that are intended to support applications for research or marketing permits for products regulated by the FDA, or by similar or other national agencies. This includes drugs for human and animal use but also aroma and color additives in food, biological products, and medical devices.
