    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.

    A&L Canada Laboratories Inc. complies with requirements of OECD Principles of Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) 1988. SCC performs GLP inspections every 4 years to ensure GLP accreditation status is maintained.
