Post Graduate Diploma in Pharmaceutical  Good Laboratory Practice


The international standard of GLP or Good Laboratory Practice is a quality system used in research labs. As part of their responsibility, scientists have conventionally adopted good laboratory practices directed at ensuring the quality of their data. Nevertheless, until recently these practices were not consistently adopted or enforced. But, now national and international agencies have developed guidelines aimed at various industries (food, agriculture, pharmaceutical, clinical, biotech, cosmetics, environmental, etc.) which fall in the general category of Good Laboratory Practices (GLP).

Since the issue of GLP is so important to modern laboratory operations, this programme will incorporate many of the principles that are part of GLP in contemporary commercial laboratories. It will be useful for next generation individuals seeking careers in the industry who need practical skills and expertise for the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and healthcare workforce.This curriculum is specifically designed to help participants by:
- Improving knowledge and understanding of the GLP principles and its regulatory basis ;
- Overview of current GLP status as well as achieving compliance with GLP regulations ;
- Understanding the requirements of a laboratory facility;
- Comprehensive information about documentations, such as Standard Operating Procedures, protocols, study plans, data quality and integrity, auditing, etc.;

On successful completion of this programme, participants are expected to have better understanding of the requirements of GLP for the efficient working of a testing laboratory by applying the knowledge into practice. The programme provides an overview of ISO / IEC 17025: 2005 as well as the common requirements of GLP Compliance (OECD & FDA) as applicable to various testing Laboratories and research organizations. This will also include recent developments related to computer validation.

- Covers key areas through programmes that integrate theory and practice
