SAGEA took part to the 2nd National Conference on “Implementation of the principles of Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) – Update for Inspectors and Professional Figures related to the GLP Contract Research Organizations” organized by the Institute of Health and Ministry of Health, held in Rome on 8th May 2018.
Most of the Study Directors, Principal Investigators and Quality Assurances of SAGEA Group, attended to the Conference.
It was an opportunity to meet and share knowledge with all interested parties, Authorieties and Contract Research Organizations. The level was very high for the rich content of the topics presented by the speakers of the Monitoring Unit and SAGEA participated actively interacting with them.
Specific topics were presented after the recent OECD Guidelines publications (17, 18 and 19) with the aim of contributing to a greater harmonization on the application of the GLP principles.
The most frequent issues during the application of GLP principles in conducting the studies were also discussed on the basis of questions received directly from the CROs and on critical issues reported by the inspectors emerged during the inspections.
For SAGEA this was the second GLP event of the year, because in April was already organized an internal workshop on GLP principles, where participated more than 20 GLP specialists coming from Italy, Spain, Portugal, Serbia and Bulgaria.
