The OECD principles of GLP serve to harmonize testing procedures for the Mutual Acceptance of Data (MAD). This means that data generated from non-clinical research carried out at sa-ford is not only highly reliable, but also accepted and recognized across the globe. A study performed in compliance with the GLP principles does not have to be repeated for registration of a product with multiple regulators. Included in the scope of GLP are various industrial products such as color additives, food additives, food contaminants, food packaging and medical devices. All our reports carry a statement of conformance to the principles of GLP.

GLP certification in India is awarded by the Ministry of Science & Technology, Government of India after thorough inspection of the test facility, its organizational structure and the processes followed therein. Sa-ford has been certified for conducting chemistry and in vivo & in vitro toxicological studies in compliance with the OECD principles of GLP since 2011.
