On-line Audio Seminar 153

Good Laboratory Practices

Basic Intro, requirements and impact on your organization


Order Button

Complying with GLP regulations can increase the cost of a laboratory up to 30%. Companies or employees either don't know exactly what GLP really means, what procedures are required and how to implement GLP regulations. Lack of GLP knowledge is also an inspection issue as training plans should include basic GLP knowledge for everybody working in a GLP environment

Questions related to Good Laboratory Practices are:

  • What is GLP?
  • Who has to comply with GLP regulations?
  • What are the differences between FDA and international GLP regulations?
  • What are the differences between a GLP and non-GLP work?
  • What are the incremental costs?
  • What are the requirements?
  • What are the responsibilities of analysts, supervisor, study directors, QA and management?
  • How should we archive GLP data: paper, microfiche, electronic?
  • How many SOPs are really needed?
  • How to document GLP studies and protocols?
  • How to prepare the laboratory and staff for an FDA inspection?
  • What are the most frequently found deviations and how can we avoid them?

How does the audio seminar help:

A good understanding of GLP regulations and current FDA interpretations together with a good strategy for implementation not only can keep the costs under control but provides assurance that the lab will pass FDA and other GLP inspections. Answers to the questions above will be presented by Dr. Ludwig Huber in a new interactive audio seminar. During the seminar, the speaker will give an introduction on GLP, present strategies and give practical recommendations. After the seminar, an extensive list of reference material like SOPs, checklists, templates and examples will help immediate and cost effective implementation.

During the interactive presentation you learn about:

  • FDA and International GLP regulations: 21 CFR Part 58
  • Objectives and concepts of GLP's
  • Special organizational requirements
  • Responsibilities: Management, Study director, QA, analysts
  • SOP requirements: type, formats and enforcement
  • GLP studies: preparation, conduct, documentation
  • Key requirements for equipment, facilities reference material, people
  • Data generation and evaluation: raw data, intermediate results, final results
  • Records keeping: format, length of time, archiving and reprocessing
