About the 2nd NCCL

The minimum standard of international laboratory practice is Good Laboratory Practice (GLP). This concept arose in the 1970s due to concerns regarding the validity of laboratory results from different labs. Internationally, compliance with GLP is a prerequisite for the mutual acceptance of laboratory results. This mutual acceptance of test results makes it unnecessary to repeat analyses conducted elsewhere.

Mutual acceptance of laboratories and results which are GLP-compliant necessitates the establishment of national procedures for monitoring compliance. Such procedures are based on laboratory inspections and audits by the designated national authority.

GLP is defined as a quality system of management controls for laboratories to ensure the uniformity, consistency, reliability, reproducibility, quality, and integrity of chemical tests and the methods of recording, reporting and archiving of test results. The implementation of GLP in chemical laboratories requires that properly licensed Chemists and Chemical Technicians undertake the operations as required by RA 10657. Since all of these aspects are of equal importance for compliance with GLP, it is not permissible to claim GLP if not all provisions are fully implemented.

In this regard, the Integrated Chemists of the Philippines (ICP) is organizing the second annual¬†National Conference of Chemical Laboratories (NCCL), to be held on 28-29 November 2018 at the Century Park Hotel, Manila. The theme for this year’s NCCL is “Minimum Standards of International Laboratory Practice: Accuracy and Reliability of Test Results”. This conference will cover the fundamental points of GLP: Resources, Characterization, Rules, Results, and Quality Assurance. In addition, the topics of Laboratory safety and Equipment management will be discussed.

Who Should Attend the 2nd NCCL?

This conference is valuable to all chemists working in the chemical laboratory as analysts and supervisors. Likewise, chemical technicians, and laboratory managers and owners will benefit from the topics at hand. Chemistry educators, science practitioners and others will also find this conference most useful.

Continuing Professional Development

To be decided by the CPD Council of Chemistry soon.
