FDA has spoken about part 11 at many conferences. Also, it has issued six pieces of the draft guidance to help interpret 21 CFR Part 11 in the past. However, concerns have been raised, particularly in its requirements for validation, audit trails, record retention, record copying, and legacy systems.


In March of 1997, FDA issued final 21 CFR Part 11 regulations that provide criteria for acceptance by the FDA, under certain circumstances, of electronic records, electronic signatures, and handwritten signatures executed to electronic records as equivalent to paper records and handwritten signatures executed on paper.

On February 25, 2003 (68 FR 5645), FDA announced the withdrawal of the 21 CFR Part 11 draft guidance documents on validation, glossary of terms, time stamps, maintenance of electronic records, and CPG 7153.17. Moreover, in Aug 2003, the previous guidance was issued to describe how the FDA intended to exercise enforcement discretion regarding specific part 11 requirements during the re-examination of 21 CFR Part 11.

This e-Book discusses 21 CFR Part 11 since it remains in effect during the FDA reexamination period. Also, we will elaborate on the latest guidance published in Aug 2003.
