GLP requires many types of documents. The seminar covers both the general issues and many specifics that laboratories can receive a non-compliance on. These range from data recording to validation issues to training records to archiving of documents.

An auditor can find numerous common errors and many, many others that are specific to a particular laboratory. This seminar will go through many of the compliance areas and point out some of both of these types. For those implementing GLP or striving to maintain certification, this course should point out many areas to examine that would lessen an unsatisfactory audit.

Most of the focus on a laboratory’s compliance with Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) or with the analogous ISO 17025 is on items such as the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), training, quality assurance testing, and the statistical assessment of performance and compliance. These, however, are not all that an auditor may delve into. These might the bulk of an audit, yet a laboratory may still fail an audit while doing well on all of these areas. Since laboratories focus on these, other areas might be ignored – the more mundane and simple areas, such as recordkeeping and archiving, basic laboratory operations, and safety.
