Within the next few weeks and months the FDA will conduct a series of Part 11 related inspections. Planned routine inspections will be extended to evaluate the companies' practices to ensure accuracy, integrity, authenticity and availability of electronic records, and the FDA plans additional 'for cause inspections'. Inspections are planned for US but also in foreign countries. The program is the long awaited next step for Part 11 and nevertheless it came as a surprise to the industry. There are many questions about the program and further steps::

Key Questions related to FDA's Part 11 Inspection Program are:

  • How are companies selected for the inspections?
  • Are companies selected based on submissions to the FDA?
  • Are 3rd party service providers part of the program, e.g., CROs?
  • Will there be a list of companies that will be inspected?
  • Will the outcome of inspections be made available to the public, e.g., through warning letters?
  • When exactly will the program start and how long will it last?
  • How many inspections will be part of the program?
  • Could preclinical (GLP) studies be part of the program?
  • Will there be a dedicated Part 11 inspection team?
  • Is the material used to train inspectors available to the the public, and if so how can we get it?
  • Are inspectors trained on what to look at specifically?
  • It seems, that record integrity is a key issue, Is there a standard how records are protected ?
  • Will inspections take longer because of Part 11?
  • Will there be a process to review the inspection reports to ensure consistency?
  • Are there certain things inspectors will always look at? 
  • Will there be a standard inspection questionnaire?
  • What are the recommendations for clinical record systems?
  • How will the program impact inspections of Medical Device manufacturers?
  • Validation is one important requirement, is there a guidance from the FDA?
  • How should we prepare our department for inspections?
  • How can we fix most critical Part 11 issues short term?
  • Is enforcement discretion still applied and if yes for which requirements?
  • What are the most likely Part 11 steps after this program?
