Nonclinical Laboratories Inspected under Good Laboratory Practices

Under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) and Public Health Service Act, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires sponsors of most FDA-regulated products to submit evidence of their products’ safety in research and/or marketing applications.  

The FDA conducts careful inspections of facilities that perform nonclinical laboratory studies to determine compliance with Part 58 (Good Laboratory Practice for Nonclinical Laboratory Studies) of Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations. Nonclinical laboratory studies are experiments in which test articles are studied prospectively in test systems (animals, plants, microorganisms, or subparts thereof) under laboratory conditions to determine their safety.
