Is Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) Required in ISO 17025?

#1
I have been debating with some folks about the need to create an SOP for GLP in an ISO 17025-accredited environment.
GLP mostly deals with proper performance of a study in clinical or experimentation in a lab environment.
So why do you need GLP documentation for ISO 17025 environment...

The scope of the ISO 17025 accreditation is testing to standards in the industry (i.e., Tappi, ANSI and others) like Accelerated Aging, Dye Penetration and others. In other words it is doing reliability test on products of other companies...

Good day @DarkJester ;
The short answer is, 'you don't.

As you may know both the EPA and FDA (title 40 and title 21 respectively [others that I'm not aware of ??], have developed rules for GLP.

GLP, while many aspects overlap with ISO 17025 requirements, is a separate item and may or may not be an additional consideration (the reason others asked you about the scope of your laboratory).

Is your laboratory already accredited to ISO 17025 ? (if so, can you please post the actual verbatim scope of your 17025 accreditation? ...[what you provided seems like a description/paraphrase of an actual boundary scope] ).

In short, if your lab is ISO 17025 accredited and the stated titles are applicable (by definition and/or contract consideration with a client), then your lab could simply do a gap analysis between your 17025 system and the applicable title rules.

Regardless of the approach, I would highly recommend against creating /managing two "systems". If your lab is ISO 17025 accredited, simply address any additional applicable title rules within your lab ISO 17025 system.

Hope this helps.

Be well.
