Understanding GLP's and their relationship with GMPs and SOP’s

Good Laboratory Practices (GLP’s) are a series of federal regulations passed in the US by the FDA under 21 CFR Part 58. In addition, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) also has formed GLP’s both for Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) in 40 CFR Part 160 and for Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) in 40 CFR Part 792.

Biotechnology concept

GLP’s are Quality Systems that relate to the processes and conditions that organizations carrying out nonclinical studies concerning health and the environment have to comply with. The objective of creating these processes and conditions is to ensure proper planning, performance, monitoring, recording, archiving and reporting of these studies. GLP’s are not just guidelines; they have the effect of a law.

The intention of framing GLP’s is that a minimum standard has to be established for conducting nonclinical laboratory research. This acts as the basis for research or marketing of products that are regulated by the FDA or the EPA. Typically, products that come under GLP’s include:

  • Animal food additives
  • Medical devices that are meant for human use
  • Biological products
  • Pesticide products
  • Human and animal drugs
  • Electronic products

Cosmetic products do not come under GLP’s.

An understanding of GMPs

good-manufacturing-practices-4-638

Good Manufacturing Practices or GMPs are quality assurance standards which ensure that consistency and control go into the manufacture of products and that these products are in accordance with their quality standards that are required for their Intended Use and in conformity with the Market Authorization or the specifications that the product has to have.

What are SOP’s?

Standard Operating Procedures (SOP’s) are detailed written instructions that are aimed at bringing about maximization of safety and efficiency in the operations of select types of organizations such as:

  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Clinical research
  • Emergency response
  • Government
  • Power

How are GLP’s related to GMPs and SOP’s?

Do GLP’s, GMPs and SOP’s have a close relationship with each other? How are they, all being vital elements of the industries to which they relate, connected with each other? GLP’s have nothing to do with GMPs, but what about SOP’s? What is the nature of the similarities between these and what are their differences?

This will be the important learning a webinar from Compliance4All, a leading provider of professional trainings for all the areas of regulatory compliance, will offer. At this webinar, the speaker is Joy McElroy. During the over 20 years of working in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries, Joy has gained extensive knowledge of Quality Assurance, Process and Cleaning Validation, and Equipment Qualification, which has enabled her to write and execute Equipment Qualification and Validation Protocols for several well-known companies.

Comparison and differences between GLP, GMP and SOP

Professionals such as Quality Assurance Personnel, Quality Control Personnel, Research and Development Personnel, Regulatory Affairs Personnel, Project Managers, Manufacturing Managers, Validation Engineers, Internal Auditing Personnel, Microbiology Personnel and Auditors will learn everything from:

  • What GLPs are
  • Why they were created
  • The objective of GLP’s
  • How they relate and are associated with GMPs.

Joy will explain what GLP’s are and help participants understand and compare the differences with GMPs.

Simple but [Important Things] to Remember About FDA Trainings

When you work in an industry that is regulated by the FDA, one thing that is as certain as day and night is the fact of FDA regulation. Of course, this is as obvious as saying that solar power is derived from the sun and is as silly as asking if the FDA regulates FDA-regulated industries! The point being made is that regulation is the essence of the FDA’s existence. The FDA has been created to regulate certain industries with the intention of ensuring safety and reliability of the products.This…See More
