GLP Drug Safety Testing Center


The first-of-its-kind Drug Safety Testing Center (DSC) is a new HKSTP initiative to facilitate the translation of promising therapeutics and medical devices from the preclinical phase to the clinical stage.

Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) and IACUC

A drug candidate must first be proven safe before entering clinical trials.

GLP is the managerial quality control system that covers entire organisation and testing procedures to ensure quality, uniformity, consistency, reliability and reproducibility.

DSC is going to apply for GLP certification in 2023 and aims to become the first facility in Hong Kong to obtain the GLP certifications from China NMPA, US FDA and OECD.

Study plans are required to seek approval from the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (“IACUC”) which upholds the highest bioethics and commitment to quality animal care.
