GLP, GCP, and GMP
You should be familiar with these QM Systems if you carry out tests, studies, clinical investigations or, verification tests in your own company.
Frequently asked questions when conducting tests and studies
Have you asked yourself some of these questions?
- Is my testing division a laboratory and, does it have to comply with ISO 17025?
- To what extent does my testing department, which performs verification testing, need to be independent of the rest of the company?
- How do I integrate the requirements for laboratories into my existing QM System?
- Do I have to meet specific requirements to conduct clinical trials?
- What do I have to consider when conducting clinical studies?
- Are the requirements for laboratories the same in all European countries? What does the FDA require?
These are just some of the questions you might be asking yourself - or have probably already asked yourself - when it comes to QM requirements for your laboratory for clinical trials.
GLP, GCP and, GMP - These are the differences

GLP - Good Laboratory Practice are requirements to the QM System for laboratories, which perform non-clinical safety inspections
GCP - Good Clinical Practice are QM requirements for laboratories conducting clinical studies.
