The OECD Guidelines for the testing of chemicals are followed in the Central Animal Laboratory to assess the safety of chemical products. OECD principles are approved by GLP authorities as the most relevant internationally agreed testing methods.
According to GLP rules, all actions that take place in the Central Animal Laboratory (procedures in the facilities, documentation and archiving of activities) are described in details in SOPs (Standard Operating Procedure).
The facilities are routinely inspected by authorities from Finnish Medicines Agency (Fimea) according to the national GLP Compliance Monitoring Programme, approximately every second year or more often. The main reason is to ensure that the operating instructions are put into practice.
