Quality systems have been introduced into several areas of toxicology, usually following the discovery of unreliable or fraudulent data. The requirements of regulatory Good Laboratory Practice are described, with some background to those requirements. Other areas of toxicology involved in legal systems are also addressed. The consequences of incorrect data emanating from apparently respected sources are illustrated, and the benefit of implementing quality processes even in the absence of statutory requirement is expounded.
