Compliance Solutions for meeting FDA CFR 21 Part 11 digital signature requirements

Digital signatures applied to documents using GlobalSign solutions can be part of an organization’s 21 CFR Part 11 compliant solution.

Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical companies, drugs and medical manufacturers, or any organization regulated by the FDA need to be aware of the digital signature requirements established by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) via Code of Federal Regulations; Electronic Records; Electronic Signatures (CFR) 21 Part 11. Part 11 was developed in response to the soaring costs associated with managing the distribution, storage, and retrieval of records used in conjunction with the FDA. If your organization is involved in transmitting any sensitive electronic information including medical device quality control records, clinical trials, or any type of electronic submissions to the FDA, then you need to carefully consider this important federal regulation.
