Good Laboratory Practice (QMS ISO 17025)

One Day Training Course




"Good Laboratory Practices is a quality system concerned with the organisational process and the conditions under which non clinical health and environmental safety studies are planned, performed, monitored, recorded, archived and reported" - OECD Principles of GLP (1997)


However Good Laboratory Practice can be interpreted by industry as the effective application of laboratory management systems to ensure that laboratory testing is planned, performed, monitored, recorded and reported in an organised and controlled manner. Therefore this course looks specifically at the effective application of laboratory quality management systems as per ISO 17025:2005 General Requirements for the Competence of Testing and Calibration Laboratories


This course provides training for personnel of laboratories who wish to demonstrate that they produce test results that are fit for the purpose and which would stand up to the scrutiny of, for example, Good Laboratory Practice Compliance Inspectors,  FDA or IMB Inspectors, laboratory accreditation bodies and customers.


The requirements of GLP Compliance (OECD & FDA) can be included if requested.


While the course will naturally reflect the tutor’s experience in microbiology, the content will be useful to testing laboratories of all kinds.
