You should remember that GMP and GLP are known to be regulations but they are meant to serve two different types of purposes. The GLP is supposed to make sure that the scientific data will remain intact. This will make sure that there will be enough data available regarding the EPA or the FDA.

The GLP will make sure that there are certain rules that will be followed to ensure that chemicals that will be seen in the lab are going to be reliable and ready for testing. There are some chemicals that may not be ideal to be used because they have already been contaminated. These may need to be removed from the lab according to the GLP.

There are a lot of people who get confused about what GLP and GMP means. You first have to know their actual meaning. GLP stands for Good Laboratory Practice while GMP stands for Good Manufacturing Practice. These are regulations that have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration or the FDA depending on the things that should be done.

GLP is followed by people who are doing laboratory work while the GMP is followed by those who are in factories and other industries wherein they are required to manufacture things that may be needed by individuals all over the world. They are both used in the pharmaceutical industry but people are recommended to know both so that they will know what practice to follow depending on the situation.
