CfPIE Introduces Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) Facility Certification Program

New offering provides the documentation needed to prove that U.S. facilities and quality systems are fully GLP compliant

Malvern, PA - November 2, 2016 - The Center for Professional Innovation and Education (CfPIE), the global leader of technical training across the life sciences industry, has introduced a new certification program to address revised Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) regulations that the FDA published in August 2016.

The FDA is currently conducting surveillance inspections of laboratories, testing sites, and contract research organizations (CROs) to ensure that facilities comply with GLP and can maintain data integrity for their studies. If the Study Director cannot prove GLP compliance and data integrity, they can be subject to a Form 483, other Warning Letters, and more.

Until now, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, or medical-device laboratories and CROs in the United States had no way to show that their facilities are compliant with GLP, as their European counterparts can.

CfPIE’s unique GLP Facility Certification Program follows a 5-step auditing process and provides clients with the documentation they need to prove that their facilities and quality systems are fully GLP compliant.

“Our clients and students have frequently expressed a strong concern that there are no government bodies or independent agencies offering such a service, says Kenneth Cleaver, Ph.D., Director of CfPIE’s GLP Facility Certification Program. “With scrutiny from the FDA increasing we are providing clients with something they have never had before.”
