Training Overview

The Good Laboratory Practice regulations describe the minimal standards for conducting nonclinical laboratory studies that support or are intended to support applications for research or marketing permits for products regulated by FDA or EPA such as animal food additives, human and animal drugs, medical devices for human use, biological products, electronic products, or pesticide products.

The Good Clinical Practices regulations pertain to studies utilizing human subjects or clinical studies. While the GLPs do not specifically pertain to basic exploratory studies carried out to determine whether a test article has any potential utility or, for FDA studies only, to determine the physical or chemical characteristics of a test article, adherence to their principles will further ensure the accuracy of any results achieved.
