GLP (Good Laboratory Practice); GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice)

They are codes of practice designed to reduce to a minimum the chance of accidents which could affect a research project or a manufactured product. The GLP and GMP prescriptions are quite voluminous, but boil down to a few key points. The essential point of both GLP and GMP is that everything is recorded, and that only established procedures are used and by people who have been trained to use them.
