Unmanageable laboratories, inexperienced and inadequate employee cadres, fraudulent reports, incomplete data, results approved by unauthorized persons, un-calibrated vehicle uses, inadequate archival applications and a number of other adverse applications, the emergence of the GLP Good Laboratory Practices System has been effective.
Good Laboratory Practicesis a quality assurance system that covers the conditions and management procedures for planning, conducting, monitoring, recording, archiving and reporting of environmental and health safety studies conducted outside clinical trials.
The Regulation on Good Laboratory Practice Principles and Certification of Testing Laboratories has been enacted for the certification of GLP Good Laboratory Practices in our country. According to the provisions of this regulation issued in 2010,
- The Ministry of Health is responsible for the control of cosmetic products, harmful organisms and pharmaceutical products and certifies the test laboratories operating in this field.
- The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs is responsible for the control of veterinary drugs, harmful organisms, food additives, feed additives and certifies the test laboratories operating in this field.
- The Ministry of Environment is responsible for the control of substances and products covered by the Dangerous Chemicals Regulation and certifies the test laboratories operating in this field.
The fact that laboratories are documented in this way is considered to be a reliable indicator of their technical competence. This means the respectability of the laboratories both inside and outside the country. It means the official recognition of the qualification of a laboratory that receives documents.
GLP Good Laboratory Practices System Certificatemeans that the laboratories provide reliable testing, analysis and calibration services to their customers. This provides a great convenience to the customers' laboratory selection.
The main objective of Good Laboratory Practice is to ensure the reliability and quality of the test data. In addition, the protection of human health and the environment is another objective. It is also intended to save time, cost and resources by preventing test repetitions.
