Ensuring 21 CFR Compliance with GyrusAim LMS

GyrusAIM, Healthcare, LMS  By: Emily Fox

21 cfr checkTechnology has so greatly improved the ability to track and verify training records and certifications via digital signatures that physical records and handwritten signatures

are rare in today’s business environment.  To define the trustworthiness of such electronic signatures the FDA created Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations Part 11 which sets the standards and regulations of electronic records and electronic signatures for organizations in bio-technology, medical manufacturing, pharmaceutical, healthcare and other FDA regulated industries.

Issued in 1997, Title 21 CFR Part 11 allowed digital records and signatures to be equivalent to their handwritten counterparts while creating official methods that organizations must use to maintain and electronically submit them to the FDA.  If all electronic records met these requirements then the signatures are officially accepted.

Requirement Highlights:

 

  • Validation to ensure accuracy, reliability, consistent performance and the ability to discern altered records.
  • Ability to generate accurate and complete copies suitable for inspection, review and copying.
  • Protection of records.
  • Limiting system access to unauthorized personnel.
  • Use of secure, computer-generated, and time-stamped audit trails to independently record the date and time of entries and actions that create, modify or delete electronic records.
  • Use of operational systems checks to enforce permitted sequencing of steps and events.
  • Use of authority checks to ensure that only authorized individuals can use the system.
  • Use of device checks to determine the validity of the source of data.
