Good Laboratory Practice

Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) is a quality system concerned with the organizational process and the conditions under which non-clinical health and environmental safety studies on pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, industrial chemicals, food and cosmetics are planned, performed, monitored, recorded, archived and reported.

In the UK the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) carries out inspections as laid down by the Directive 2004/9/EC to ensure that test facilities apply the principles of GLP as contained within Statutory Instrument No. 1999/3106, the Good Laboratory Practice Regulations 1999.

Moredun Scientific has been a member of the UK GLP Compliance Programme since 1992. Our most recent inspection by the MHRA was in September 2020.

In our Animal Health and Aquaculture businesses, Safety Pharmacology, Target Animal Safety studies and Environmental Toxicology studies are compliant with GLP standards. In our Biosafety, Testing business our in vivo studies are as defined in relevant guidelines and are also compliant with GLP standards.
