FDA Compliant Electronic Records Management

Requirements, Strategies and Tools for Implementation


Order Button

Electronic records are more and more replacing paper records to demonstrate compliance with regulations. Advantages are more convenient search capabilities, easier communication across different sites and last but not least smaller storage volumes. While FDA regulated companies are quite familiar with compliance of paper records, there are many questions related to electronic records, especially when using more recent communication technologies, such as e-mails..

Key Questions related to electronic records management are:

  • What are current and future US FDA requirements for electronic records?
  • Are there different requirements in Europe or Asia?
  • What are inspectors looking for?
  • How to archive electronic formats: standard files or proprietary formats?
  • How to define raw data and meta data?
  • What should be contents of a retention policy?
  • We scan paper documents for easier search, can we destroy the paper?
  • We transcribe paper records into a computer, do we need to keep the paper?
  • We plan to purchase an electronic records management system, what should we care about?
  • What should we care about when we migrate to a new computer system
  • We want to use e-mails to communicate regulated activities, what should we care about?
    What should I care about when I sign electronic documents?
