Good Laboratory Practices (GLPs) Comparing and Contrasting GMP


Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) differs from Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) in a fundamental way. GLP deals with preclinical development, while GMP has to do with manufacturing. That is, while GLP concerns itself with study, GMP is all about the method, i.e., the process.

GLP are a set of regulations for conducting nonclinical laboratory studies, and are not a set of guidelines. GLP is covered under 21 CFR Part 58, and regulate nonclinical laboratory studies that support or intend supporting applications for research or marketing permits for certain classes of products. These include:

  • Food and color additives
  • Human and animal drugs
  • Medical devices for human use
  • Biological products and electronic products that are regulated by the FDA.

Joy McElroy, Principal Consultant at Maynard Consulting Company, will, at a marathon four-hour session being organized on March 25 by GlobalCompliancePanel, a leading provider of professional training for all the areas of regulatory compliance, explain all the aspects of GLP while giving clarity on how it differs from GMP.
