OECD Series on Principles of Good Laboratory Practice and Compliance Monitoring
- 2077-785X (online)
This is the complete set of the series on OECD Principles of Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) which set the quality standards for the organisation and management of test facilities and for performing and reporting studies related to the safety of chemical substances and preparations. The GLP Principles cover all aspects of a laboratory’s daily activity, such as the layout of testing and storage areas to prevent contamination, cleaning and calibration of equipment, handling of test animals, and recording and archiving of test results. The GLP Principles thereby help ensure that studies submitted to regulatory authorities, to notify or register chemicals, are of sufficient quality and rigour and are verifiable.

This document provides the full text of the OECD Principles of Good Laboratory Practice as revised in 1997. The Principles of Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) have been developed to promote the quality and validity of test data used for determining the safety of chemicals and chemicals products. It is a managerial concept covering the organisational process and the conditions under which laboratory studies are planned, performed, monitored, recorded and reported. Its principles are required to be followed by test facilities carrying out studies to be submitted to national authorities for the purposes of assessment of chemicals and other uses relating to the protection of man and the environment.
