GLP stands for "Good Laboratory Practices". GLP's are guidelines that deal with the organization and method with which research studies are conducted and documented. Prior to a pesticide being registered, residue work must be completed and data reviewed by the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) of Health Canada and/or US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ensure the safety of the product. Often, these studies have to be conducted following the principles of GLP.
