Introduction and Strategies and Tools for Implementation


Order Button

In 1997 the US FDA issued a regulation that provides criteria for acceptance by the FDA of electronic records, electronic signatures and handwritten signatures. The rule applies to all industry segments regulated by the FDA that includes Good Laboratory Practice (GLP), Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP). Even the rule is more than 10 years old there still many questions related to the scope and real requirements of Part 11.

Questions are:

  • For which computer systems does Part 11 apply?
  • What are the key Part 11 requirements?
  • Which requirements are enforced and which ones not?
  • What are the main inspection issues?
  • FDA requires to base Part 11 implementation on risk assessment: What does this mean? What are the minimal documentation requirements?
  • What does limited and authorized access really mean?
  • Which types of procedures are required?
  • When is electronic audit trail a 'must'?
  • How to archive raw data: paper vs. electronic records
  • How to deal with existing systems? What are minimum requirements?
  • How to develop and implement a gap analysis and remediation plan?
  • What if Part 11 functionality is not available for my system?
  • Where to get reference material (gap analysis, examples, worksheets, SOPs) for easy implementation?
  • Our supplier offers a Part 11 compliant computer system, why should I care?
