Good Laboratory Practice (GLP)


Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) is a quality system that must be complied with in non-clinical studies which are intended to be submitted to a national registration authority with the purpose of registering or licensing of chemicals, medicinal products, pesticide products, food additives, feed additives or cosmetic products.

The Finnish national authority responsible for GLP compliance monitoring is Fimea, to which the duty was assigned from Valvira on 1 November 2009. Fimea also represents Finland in international cooperation in EU and OECD working groups.
