Good Clinical Practice

Good Clinical Practice (GCP) is intended to be an international ethical and scientific quality standard for designing, conducting, monitoring, recording, auditing, analyzing and reporting clinical studies evaluating veterinary medicinal products.

Guidance has been developed under the principles of the International Cooperation on Harmonization of Technical Requirements for Registration of Veterinary Medicinal Products (VICH) and provides a unified standard for the European Union (EU), Japan and the United States of America to facilitate the mutual acceptance of clinical data by regulatory authorities – VICH-GL9 (GCP).

In our Animal Health business all clinical studies evaluating veterinary medicinal products are conducted to VICH-GCP standards.
