Using Electronic and Digital Signatures in Regulated Environments
This webinar will familiarize you with FDA requirements for electronic and digital signatures, and the agency's inspection and enforcement practices. Particpants will recieve complimentary hand-outs for easy implementation.
Why Should You Attend:
FDA Part 11 and other regulations such EU GMP Annex 11 allow to sign electronic records with electronic and digital signatures. Benefits for regulated user firms are increased overall efficiency and reduced costs for handling and storing paper records. While nearly all Part 11 related papers and seminars deal with requirements of electronic records there is hardly any information about electronic and digital signatures. Therefore most companies are unsure about electronic signatures such that they print out copies of electronic records and sign the paper.
In this seminar attendees will become familiar with FDA requirements for electronic and digital signatures.
