The Standards Council of Canada (SCC) administers the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) initiative in Canada and is the only monitoring authority in Canada that grants OECD Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) recognition.
OECD GLP principles cover virtually all management aspects of non-clinical health and environmental safety studies, from planning experiments to archiving and reporting results. These principles apply to work done in laboratories, greenhouses and in the field.
Compliance with the OECD GLP principles helps ensure that non-clinical studies follow internationally-accepted requirements. These studies are then more easily recognized by other OECD member countries.
Certification bodies from around the world seek SCC accreditation as proof that their work is in line with the most current national and international standards and regulations.
In this video, Adrien Musuku, Director of Biopharmaceutics for Montreal-based Pharmascience, discusses the important benefits of SCC’s Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) recognition program.
