Getting a grasp of the FDA’s New Enforcement of 21 CFR Part 11
That the FDA has become more rigorous in the enforcement of Part 11 through its new Part 11 and on-going data integrity inspection and enforcement program is evident in this: In just the last three years, it issued more than 30 Warning Letters with Part 11 and data integrity violations. The most common citations are related to not only inadequate integrity, security and availability of electronic records, but also to validation of software and computer systems.
Among the most important questions about the program is what major findings inspectors are looking at. So, companies need to be even more vigilant then before in implementing their electronic records. In view of these developments, it is essential to have in place a proper and foolproof process for ensuring integrity, authenticity and availability of electronic records.
